Iranian woman escapes stoning

In the central Iranian city of Yazd, a woman managed to escape from her sentence of death by stoning by crawling out of her hole.

Under the Sharia, the accused is buried up to the neck in the earth and stones are thrown by those who wish to punish her. If the accused is able to escape by her own means, it is considered that she should be able to walk away free. In the case of men, they are only buried up to the waist, so they have more chance of escaping.
