Iranian authorities have reportedly ordered that Sakineh Ashtiani be executed for adultery tomorrow, and protesters are mounting a last-ditch effort to save her.
A press release by the International Committee Against Stoning (whose website appears to be experiencing problems) says, "the authorities in Tehran have given the go ahead to Tabriz prison for the execution of Iran stoning case Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. It has been reported that she is to be executed this Wednesday 3 November." The committee also reports that Ashtiani's son and lawyer were arrested on October 10, and "have been severely tortured in order to obtain confessions against Sakineh and themselves." Reports on whether Ashtiani will actually be stoned or executed in some other way have been conflicting, and according to Fox News, the method of the upcoming execution is still unknown.
