Iran Shifts Focus in Stoning Case to Murder

An Iranian official has confirmed that the government halted the death sentence by stoning of a woman charged with adultery, but he reiterated that she was still facing murder charges.

The official, Ramin Mehmanparast, a spokesman for Iran’s Foreign Ministry, was the highest-ranking Iranian official to formally acknowledge that Iran had suspended the woman’s stoning, a sentence that provoked and intensified criticism of Iran’s human rights record.
