Attorney: Iran officials decide to execute woman facing stoning

A second attorney representing an Iranian woman whose death by stoning sentence was under review told a human rights activist Thursday that Iranian authorities have decided she will be executed.

Mina Ahadi, spokeswoman for the International Committee against Stoning, said she had spoken to Hotan Kian, an attorney who attended a court session in Tehran Wednesday. He was informed that there would be no more appeals for his client, Sakineh Mohammedie Ashtiani, and that Iran's high court will decide within a week whether she will be stoned or be executed in another way.

    She broke the law in Ian so Iran has every right to do execute this woman. Who are we to step in and stop it. The US executes people every year. But do you see the world making a stink about it. She knew the Law and the consequences for breaking them. Wether by stoning or anyother method the end result is the same.
