The lawyer for an Iranian woman sentenced to be stoned on an adultrery conviction said Monday that he and her children are worried the delayed execution could be carried out soon with the end of a moratorium on death sentences for the Muslim holy moth of Ramadan.

In an unusual turn in the case the lawyer also confirmed that Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani was lashed 99 times last week in a separate punishment meted out because a British newspaper ran a picture of an unveiled woman mistakenly identified as her. Under Iran's clerical rule, women must cover their hair in public.

With the end of Ramadan this week, the mother of two could be executed "any moment", said her lawyer, Javid Houtan Kian.

Calling them animals is an insult to animals.

Amazing how far that nation has fallen since the 1970's. I wonder if any parents tell their children about 'the good old days'.

Are lawyers purely ceremonial in places like Iran or what?
