Lawyer of woman facing stoning in Iran flees to Norway

Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Stoere said Sunday in a statement he was "very pleased that human rights lawyer Mohammad Mostafaie is now safe in Norway."

The foreign minister lamented that "the pressure on courageous defence lawyers such as Mostafaei is so great that they are compelled to flee," calling on Iran to respect human rights and fulfill its international obligations.
