Sakineh – International Response

http://www.cnn.com/2010/WORLD/meast/07/24/iran.stoning.protest/index.html#fbid=z2DpimzBm5z

CNN reports this morning on world wide protests against the sentence to death by stoning handed down to Sakineh, and 9-15 others in prison in Iran. One can only hope that continual pressure from the international community will end this abhorrent practice and bring some semblance of justice to the Iranian judicial system.

The Iranian people abhor this practice so much that the stonings are no longer held in public, but carried out in secrecy. Military men cast the stones, led by an official from the Judiciary or a Mullah. Cowards and barbarians all.
