If the unnamed man survives the fall down a rocky precipice, he will be hanged, legal experts said. He has 20 days to appeal the court sentence. The killer was arrested last year in the northwestern city of Mashhad after "seducing" and killing his nephew, who worked as an assistant at the man's carpenter's workshop, the Norouz daily newspaper said. Under Iran's Islamic law, applied since the 1979 revolution, pederasty, homosexuality and adultery are among a long list of crimes punishable by death.

Although I don't agree with Islamic law, I would definatly agree with a death sentence for pedofiles! [X]

And to think that Bush branded them a member of the "Axis of Evil". Sounds like we could learn a few things from them.
