That stoning is still a form of punishment.
LONDON (Reuters) – Amnesty International on Tuesday called on Iran to abolish the “grotesque and horrific” practice of stoning people to death.
Amnesty, which opposes the death penalty under any circumstances, said an Iranian man had been stoned to death in July last year for committing adultery, despite a moratorium being imposed on such executions in 2002.
They do this in Iran as well.
And in Saudi Arabia they decapitate people.
