Tehran, May 31, IRNA -- Three Iranian men have been flogged in public in
the holy city of Qom for "having illicit sex" with the same woman who also
received lashes, the evening daily Kayhan said Thursday.
It said each received 100 lashes of the whip after they were identified by
the woman who, Kayhan said, was married with two children.

It quoted the woman as saying she had opted for illicit sex because of
"poverty and inability to pay rent."

The sentences were issued by Branch 7 of Qom's criminal court with summary
jurisdiction.

The whippings were in line with the sharia or Islamic law which forbids
extra-marital sexual relationships.

Punishments can vary from jail terms to lashes, although rarely in public,
and even death by stoning for adultery.
