Tehran, Iran, Dec. 11 – An Islamic court in Tehran sentenced a woman to stoning for adultery in the town of Varamin, near Tehran, a state-run daily reported on Sunday.

The woman, only identified by her first name, Massoumeh, was given prison sentence for aiding her husband Ismaeil in the murder of a brother and sister, the daily Hamshahri reported. She was condemned to stoning for adultery, the paper added.

Ismaeil, Massoumeh’s husband, also murdered their two children in 2004, but has not been sentenced to stoning.

Under Iran’s Islamic Penal Code, adultery by a married woman is punishable by stoning. The law is very specific about the manner of execution and types of stones which should be used. Article 102 states that men will be buried up to their waists and women up to their breasts for the purpose of execution by stoning. Article 104 states, with reference to the penalty for adultery, that the stones used should “not be large enough to kill the person by one or two strikes, nor should they be so small that they could not be defined as stones”.
