Iranians suspend death by stoning.

For now.

It was also suspended back in 2002. According to the BBC, 3 people have been stoned since then.

..."authorities have been reluctant to completely abolish a penalty they say is endorsed by Islamic law.

Although stoning is not prescribed in the Koran, some Muslim scholars say it is in the traditions of the Prophet Muhammad."

And there you have it.
