Rights group fears Iran woman's execution imminent

Human Rights Watch has expressed "grave concerns" that Iran will soon execute a woman sentenced to death by stoning after she made a televised confession.

The "televised confession by Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani heightens the already grave concern that Iran will soon execute the 43-year-old woman," the New York-based watchdog said in a statement issued here late on Friday.
