Iranian ‘adulterer’ ordered to be stoned to death

Britain condemns plan as ‘medieval’

by

An Iranian woman who has already been lashed 99 times has been condemned to be stoned to death in Iran. Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani is accused of adultery, which is seen as a violation of Islamic law in Iran and is punishable by death. Ashtiani was previously whipped for having an “illicit relationship” after the death of her husband. The death sentence is a result of a relationship she allegedly had when he was alive.
