    Iran Woman's Stoning Suspended After International Outcry

    Iran has backed down over plans to stone to death a woman charged with adultery after an international outcry.

    The Islamic republic's London embassy said in a statement that "according to information from the relevant judicial authorities in Iran" Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani "will not be executed by stoning".

    However, there are still fears that Ms Ashtiani, a mother-of-two, could be put to death by other means after she was found guilty of an affair while she was married.

    Her lawyer Mohammed Mostafaei told The Times: "This is a positive development but nothing is clear yet. There have been cases in Iran of stonings being changed to hangings. We have to wait and see what happens."

    His client, 43, has already received 99 lashes in mid-2006 after she was convicted of an "illicit relationship" with two men after her husband's death, according to Human Rights Watch.
    Later that year she was put on trial again for "adultery while being married", during which Ms Ashtiani said she was forced to make a confession under duress......

    A great movie to watch in relation to this is The Stoning of Soriya M. I probably butchered the name but it's great.
