Mohammad Mostafaei, a human rights lawyer who defended a woman sentenced to death in Iran for adultery, enjoyed a tearful reunion with his wife and daughter Thursday after they flew from Tehran to Oslo, Norway.

It was the first time Mohammad Mostafaei had seen his family since he went into hiding and fled Iran in late July.

"I had a lot of stress, but when I saw my daughter and my wife, I was very happy. I cried," Mostafaei said from Oslo, where he has been granted asylum. "Today was very good for me. I could see them [for the first time] in 40 days."
