This story has been all over the news - but seems conspicuous by its absence on babble:
"Government officials, celebrities and ordinary citizens from around the world have joined international human-rights organizations in a growing campaign against the stoning sentence given to Ms. Mohammadi Ashtiani. She was first convicted on May 15, 2006, of having an “illicit relationship” with two men, for which she received 99 lashes. At a subsequent trial of a man accused of murdering her husband, Ms. Mohammadi Ashtiani was charged with “adultery while being married.” It is for that crime that she has been sentenced to death by stoning."
I for one am opposed to this woman being stoned to death and consider it barbaric. In fact I consider it barbaric that she was given even the equivalent of a parking ticket for what she did.
