Iran stoning case: Tehran ‘must free German reporters’

The two were arrested in October while interviewing the son of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, sentenced to death by stoning for adultery.

German foreign minister Guido Westerwelle and footballer Franz Beckenbauer were among the signatories.

On Saturday, Ashtiani said she planned to sue the German journalists.

She told reporters at a news conference in the north-western city of Tabriz that the journalists had “embarrassed” her, but did not elaborate.
