Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani to be stoned to death for alleged adultery


Iran’s Islamic government has sentenced Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani, a mother of two, to be executed for committing adultery. In 2006, Sakineh was sentenced and lashed 99 times for her alleged crime. Now a judges panel has re-examined the case and decided that she should be put to death by the archaic practice of stoning.

“Ashtiani, 42, will be buried up to her chest, according to an Amnesty International report citing the Iranian penal code. The stones that will be hurled at her will be large enough to cause pain but not so large as to kill her immediately.”
