Authorities reviewing a death-by-stoning sentence against an Iranian woman convicted of adultery could still halt the punishment, a senior judiciary official said Sunday as Iran struggles to mute an international outcry over the case.
Iranian state television has broadcast a statement purportedly made by an Iranian woman who has been sentenced to death by stoning for adultery. In it, the woman calls herself a "sinner."
Iran on Tuesday accused two detained Germans of having links to Iranian exile groups after they were arrested reportedly while trying to interview the son of a woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery.
Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, an Iranian woman who faces death by stoning for adultery, now has received a new sentence of 99 lashes after a British newspaper ran a picture of an unveiled woman mistakenly identified as her, her son said Monday.
"I do not think that my mother is innocent. She is certainly guilty," he said.
In his first public meeting with journalists, Mr. Qaderzadeh said he had been freed on Dec. 12 after posting a $40,000 bail and now wants to devote his life to saving his mother.
