CNN has covered Sakineh’s story in at least two segments of their world news broadcasts. Mission Free Iran‘s July 2nd protest in Washington DC opens the first segment, and the July 4th protest in Köln, Germany, led by Mina Ahadi of the International Committee Against Execution, is covered extensively as well. The broadcasts are embedded below:
1. The first video introduces Sakineh’s story through coverage of the July 2-4 Global Protests, and includes a reading of the letter from Sakineh’s children.
2. The second video focuses on CNN’s interview with Sakineh’s son, Sajjad, who has gone forward to publicly defend his mother and campaign for her freedom despite the well-known risks of doing so under a regime like the Islamic Republic.
