Stoning, or lapidation, refers to a form of capital punishment whereby a group of persons throws stones at an individual until the person dies.
""In performing""" this type of death sentence, no particular person out of the stone throwing group could be held responsible or identified as the one who actually killed the subject.
This is in contrast to the case of a judicial executioner.
Death by stoning is slower than other forms of execution, hence is a form of execution by torture.
*** Stoning is practiced in Afghanistan, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, and Nigeria

An Iranian newspaper said that Mrs Carla Bruni, the wife of France's president, deserved to die after she expressed solidarity with a woman sentenced to be stoned for adultery.
So WE ALL DESERVE TO BE STONED as we support Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani
September 8 / Dear Friends,
Almost three hundred thousand people from around the world have now signed the FreeSakineh.org petition.
Your efforts contributed to a decision by Iranian officials to review Sakineh’s case and put the stoning sentence on hold. You made a difference.
Unfortunately events of the past few days -- Sakineh’s horrendous mock execution, the elimination of all visits by her family and lawyer, the recent punishment of 99 lashes for a totally trumped up offense, and today’s announcement out of Iran that Sakineh may well be executed at the end of Ramadan ( September 9th) -- make clear there is considerable urgency to renew our efforts on her behalf.
Now is the time to implore the most senior clerics in Iran, versed and learned as they are in Sharia law and practice, to intervene on Sakineh’s behalf and speak out against the serious miscarriages of justice in her case.
The letter which appears in the link here, addressed to the religious leaders, does exactly this. CLICK here
and make your voice heard. Please, do it today!
