Iran will blind a man with acid for the first time, The Guardian reported Friday, in a literal infliction to "an eye for an eye."

In 2004, Iranian woman Ameneh Bahrami was blinded and disfigured when Majid Movahedi threw acid on her face after she scorned his romantic advances. On Saturday, Bahrami will inflict the same fate - blindness from acid - on Movahedi after he is sedated in a Tehran hospital.
