Stoning in Iran
Two and a half weeks ago Jafar Kiani is reported to have been executed by stoning outside the city of Takestan in Iran on 5th of July. Mr. Kiani was sentenced to death for having an extramarital affair with Mokarrameh Ebrahimi.
The EU is concerned that Mokarrameh Ebrahimi, the mother of the couple’s two children, will suffer the same fate. Women are buried until their breast in the ground before the killing can be started, as you can see in the picture. More info here. Or here.
In the meanwhile all kinds of business circles in Turkey and the government are making all kinds of business deals with the Mullahs in Tehran. Also, starting today, the 'religious police' will control more if women and men are dressed appropriately and if their hair is cut according to Islamic standards, whatever that means.
