Iran sentences a woman to death for adultery, state media say

TEHRAN, Iran (AP) — Iranian state media say that a court has sentenced a woman to death for adultery. The IRAN newspaper said on Wednesday that the woman worked as a trainer in a gym for females. It says her husband contacted police in 2022 when he found her with another man at their home. Under Iranian law, she can appeal the sentence. Iran is under international pressure for its extensive use of the death penalty. The U.N. says it executed at least 419 people in the first seven months of this year, up 30% from the same period last year.
