Pakistan: Stoning sentence against Zafran Bibi is suspended
A court in Pakistan has suspended the sentence of stoning to death passed against a woman convicted of adultery.
Human-rights groups had strongly criticised the sentence and demanded the immediate release of the convicted woman, Zafran Bibi. The case will now be heard by the highest court on Islamic issues, the federal Sharia court in Islamabad, although no date has yet been given.
