Iranian Woman Still in Peril

Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani is still in jail in Iran and may die soon.  She was convicted of adultery, and sentenced to death by stoning.  That was suspended, but she was also convicted of her husband's murder, because the man she committed adultery with was convicted of it.  That carries a hanging sentence.  Currently, her son and her lawyer are both in jail too, although it's unclear why.
