A live debate on the topic of the day, with four guests. From Monday to Thursday at 7.10 pm Paris time.

Can Sakineh Ashtiani be saved?

Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, charged with adultery and involvement in her husband's murder in 2006, was always under threat of death by stoning. French foreign minister Bernard Kouchner has said publicly he will do "whatever it takes" to save her. The Muslim holy month of Ramadan is in its final hours, the green light for Iran to execute those it judges as its criminals.
