Tehran, 11 Dec. (AKI) – A 48-year-old man with two children faces death by stoning in Iran after he was accused of having had extra-marital sex.

Iran’s Supreme Court has sentenced Abdollah Farivar Moghaddam to death by stoning in the city of Sari, in the north of the country.

Abdollah was accused of adultery and the Supreme Court confirmed the sentence that was passed by the judges in the tribunal in Sari.

In March, another man was stoned in the city of Ghazvin, which is about 100 kilometres from the capital Tehran.

Iran is believed to have executed at least 210 people in 2007, according to human rights groups. The Islamic republic has one of the highest rates of execution in the world, second only to China.

Capital punishment is applied in Iran in cases of murder, rape, armed robbery, serious drug trafficking and adultery.
