PARIS (AP) — French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner says he is willing to “do anything” to save an Iranian woman sentenced to death on an adultery conviction and has offered to travel to the Iranian capital to plead her case.

Bernard Kouchner calls Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani’s sentence to death by stoning “the height of barbarism” and says her case has become a “personal cause” for him

Kouchner told reporters Monday after meeting with one of the woman’s lawyer’s in Paris that “I’m ready to do anything to save her. If I must go to Tehran to save her, I’ll go to Tehran.”

Iran lifted the stoning sentence for the 43-year-old mother of two after an international outcry. She could still be hanged.
