Woman To Be Stoned To Death For Having Sex With Boyfriend

A 45-year-old Sri Lankan domestic worker has been sentenced to death by stoning for committing adultery with her single partner while working in the Arab Kingdom.

Partner of the woman got save by the bell when he got a lesser punishment of 100 lashes. Meanwhile, spokesman for the bureau said it had hired lawyers to file an appeal, while the Foreign Ministry was negotiating separately for her to be reprieved.

Meanwhile over a thousand Shia protesters have converged at a mosque in Awamiya, a largely Shia town in the oil-producing Eastern Province, demanding the immediate release of all activists placed on death row by authorities, after it emerged that officials planned to execute more than 50 prisoners in a single day.
