Iran stoning case woman to be ‘hanged’

Human rights group claims Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is to be executed for murder instead of adultery

An Iranian woman whose sentence of execution by stoning for adultery provoked a worldwide outcry will instead be hanged for murder on Wednesday, a human rights group has said.

“The authorities in Tehran have given the go-ahead to Tabriz prison for the execution … Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani,” the International Committee Against Stoning (Icas), a German-based campaign group, said on its website.
