Tehran, Iran, Jul. 08 – An Iranian woman has been sentenced to death by stoning, according to a Kurdish human rights group.

The woman, identified as Malek Ghorbani, is from the north-western city of Naqadeh, the Rapporteurs of the Organisation for Defence of Human Rights in Kurdistan said.

Ghorbani was accused of adultery, the report which appeared on several opposition websites said, adding that she is currently in a prison in the nearby town of Orumieh. A court in Orumieh handed down the sentence.

Iran Focus has not been able to independently confirm the sentence.

Naqadeh, in West Azerbaijan Province, has a strong Kurdish and Azeri population. In May, at least six Azeri anti-government protestors were killed in the city by security forces during clashes following the publication of an insulting cartoon in the official daily Iran.
