    An Iranian woman who was sentenced to death by stoning for adultery is to be hanged for murder instead, according to a human rights group. Skip related content

    The German-based International Committee Against Stoning said Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani is to be executed today.

    "The authorities in Tehran have given the go-ahead to Tabriz prison for the execution of Iran stoning case," the group says on its website.

    "It has been reported that she is to be executed this Wednesday, November 3."

    Foreign Office minister Alistair Burt called Iran's charge d'affaires in London to ask if the report was accurate.

    But the Tehran diplomat was unable to confirm or deny the claim, the Foreign Office said.

    Mr Burt said in a statement: "I took the opportunity to remind him the UK Government would regard the execution of Ms Ashtiani as utterly unacceptable."

    Ms Ashtiani's case has provoked a worldwide outcry with leading political and religious figures condemning her original sentence as medieval and barbaric.

    Brazil, a close ally of Iran, has offered to give the 43-year-old mother of two asylum.

    In September, officials said Ms Ashtiani's adultery conviction was under review, but she still faced a charge of being complicit in her husband's murder.

    Iranian television had previously aired an interview with a woman it said was Ms Ashtiani admitting to a relationship with a man who then killed her husband.

    The International Committee Against Stoning called the TV show "toxic propaganda".

    The case has worsened relations between Iran and the West, already strained by a dispute over Tehran's nuclear programme.

    According to Amnesty International, Iran is second only to China in the number of executions it carries out. It put to death at least 346 people in 2008.

    Trailer: The Stoning of Soraya M

    Stranded in a remote Iranian village, Sahebjam is approached by Zahra, a woman with a harrowing tale to tell about her niece, Soraya, and the bloody circumstances of her death just one day before. Her shocking story exposes the dark power of mob rule, uncivil law, and the utter lack of human rights for women under Islamic law. Her last and only hope for some measure of justicelies in the hands of the journalist who must escape with the story--and his life--so the whole world will know.

    They are slowly improving, but much advancement is still needed. I was surprised on Iran Defence Forum the number of people who were against their own government for trying to stone her originally. As the world gets smaller(due to technology) more ideas can be shared and people can decide for themselves which ideas best suit them... I find this interesting.

    Is the focus here to expose the atrocity of stoning of women

    or the demonization if Iran for corporate intersts?

    If it is about the stoning and ritual abuse of women then one must ask if this goes on in nations that the EU and US are comfortable with, or even do business with and send fionancial aid to

    and allow it to go on unpublicised

    why are those other nations engaging in this atrocity never mentioned in the news?

    Especialy at a time when the EU and the US are desirous of Iranian oil reserves and strategic location.?
