Austin American-Statesman - - WORLD & NATION -

TEHRAN— An Ira­nian woman con­victed of adul­tery will not be stoned to death for now, a ju­di­cial of­fi­cial said. Malek Aj­dar Sharifi, the top ju­di­cial of­fi­cial in the prov­ince where Sakineh Mo­ham­madi Ash­tiani was con­victed, told the Ira­nian state news agency that her crimes were “var­i­ous and very se­ri­ous” and not limited to adul­tery but that the sen­tence “will not be im­ple­mented for the time be­ing.”
