Film: Shappi Khorsandi on stoning

Execution by stoning. In Iran, stoning a person to death is not against the law: using the wrong stone is. "The size of the stone used in stoning shall not be too large to kill the convict by one or two throws and at the same time shall not be too small to be called a stone." Article 104, Iranian Penal Code.
