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 Press TV [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.
Wonderful, the Islamic Republic is bludgeoned into entering the 18th century.
