Rome, 2 Sept. (AKI) - Champion Italian striker Francesco Totti has lent his support to Italian news agency Adnkronos International's campaign to save an Iranian woman from death by stoning.
"It's unacceptable that such things should be happening in the times we live in," Totti, who is captain of Italian Serie A team AS Roma, told AKI.
"I urge respect for women, children and vulnerable people throughout the world," Totti added.
AKI's newly launched 'Flowers not Stones!' campaign aims to save the life of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, 43, who has been sentenced to death by stoning for allegedly committing adultery and helping kill her husband.
The campaign urges people all over the world to leave flowers outside the Iranian embassy and diplomatic representations in their country.
