Just the type of guys we’d want to be seen negotiating with, preconditions be damned.
[Telegraph] Eight women and one man convicted of adultery are set to be stoned to death in Iran, according to activists and lawyers.
A man is usually buried up to his waist, while a woman is buried up to her neck. Those carrying out the verdict then throw stones until the condemned dies.
Stoning was widely imposed in the early years after Iran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. But in recent years, it has seldom been applied, though the government rarely confirms when it carries out stoning sentences. The last stoning death confirmed by the government was in July last year.
