According to State Media -- the victim had a change of heart just minutes before the sentence was to be carried out.

A doctor was going to drop acid into the eyes of Majid Movhedi.

Movahedi threw acid into Ameneh Bagrami's face seven years ago because she rejected his advances. Bahrami is now disfigured and blind.

She originally had called for the vengeful punishment which created an uproar internationally because of its cruelty.

Bahrami says she forgave her attacker in part because the world was looking to see what Iran would do.
