In Iran nine criminals have been sentenced to death by stoning but the Iran government has said they will use smaller stones this time because USA and European leaders say "the punishment is barbarism".
The nine people are eight women and one man. The man was a music teacher who had sex with one of his students. Its disgusting!
People who do these kinds of sex crimes like prostitution and incest or adultery have to face the law and the law says that they have to die by stones. Many Western people think this is barbarism but what should they do?
In England there is not much punishment for these crimes. In America it is the same. Many people in those countries say "there should be more punishments!" In Moslem places there is!
President Ahmadinejad says that they will use smaller stones so that the death is not so painful like it would be with big stones. But really its so the pain will last longer!
