    Stoning Sentence Suspended
    September 8, 2010
    Iran has suspended the sentence of death by stoning for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, a woman convicted of adultery.
    "The verdict regarding the extramarital affairs has stopped and it's being reviewed," Foreign Ministry Spokesman Ramin Mehmanparast told the state-run PressTV - 'Ashtiani guilty of murder and adultery' [Press TV, 8 September].
    The suspension of the sentence comes after weeks of condemnation from around the world for the barbaric nature of the sentence.
