Iranian female soccer fan dies after setting herself on fire

An Iranian female football fan who set herself on fire a week ago died on Monday. The woman, identified as Sahar Khodayari, set herself ablaze after learning she may have to serve a six-month sentence for trying to enter a soccer stadium disguised as a man. Authorities in Iran regularly stop women from entering stadiums.
