The Iranian Kayhan daily, a powerful state-run newspaper, has not only called French first lady Carla Bruni-Sarkozy a “prostitute” but called for her death. The reason: her support for Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, an Iranian woman convicted of adultery and sentenced to be stoned to death.
The newspaper attacked Bruni for a “perverted lifestyle” and said that, not only does Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani deserve to die, but so does she.
The French Ministry called the comments “unacceptable” and the Iranian Foreign Ministry has encouraged the state-run newspaper to show a little more restraint. Perhaps just a flogging for the First Lady?
