Two German journalists charged with espionage in Iran for interviewing the son and lawyer of a woman condemned to die by stoning will meet with their family members Monday, according to reports from both countries.
The son and lawyer of an Iranian woman sentenced earlier this year to death by stoning appear to have been arrested in Tabriz, Iran, a spokeswoman for the International Committee Against Stoning said Monday.
Mina Ahadi was to be executed in Iran -- for political reasons, she says. But she escaped. Now she lives in Germany and works daily to save the lives of people awaiting what she says is unjust execution in her former home country.
A veteran Iranian human rights activist has warned that Sakineh Mohammadie Ashtiani, a mother of two, could be stoned to death at any moment under the terms of a death sentence handed down by Iranian authorities.
