The Iranian mother, who was sentenced to be stoned to death for adultery, has narrowly escaped that horrific fate. The government of Iran has rescinded the punishment.
 According to a BBC report, Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, will no longer be stoned to death, but it is still not clear what her fate will be. Sakineh, a 43 year old mother of two, has been imprisoned in Tabriz, since 2006, on an adultery conviction. She has already been punished with 99 lashes, given in front of her children. There has been an out pouring of support around the world; spear headed by her children and human rights leaders. Numerous online petitions have been signed and may have helped save her.
Under Iran’s law, sex before marriage is punishable by 100 lashes and adultery, by stoning.  Source ( All Voices)
