Judicial Stoning: Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani was found guilty of adultery by an Iranian court and was due to be stoned to death. Following a concerted campaign by her family and lawyers, it now seems that that sentence has been lifted, and campaigners are waiting to hear what will happen next.
Stoning is very controversial within Islamic jurisprudence, and the Iranian legal system. How is it used & how often? Jenni discusses the issues with Anne Harrison from Amnesty International & Ziba Mir Hosseini from the Centre for Islamic & Middle Eastern Law at SOAS.
