Iran calls Carla Bruni a 'prostitute' over campaign to save cheating woman

By Abdul Nisar

London, August 30 (ANI): Carla Bruni-Sarkozy, the wife of French President Nicolas Sarkozy has been called a 'prostitute' by Iran after she criticised the country's decision to stone a woman to death.

Bruni-Sarkozy, the French First Lady, was attacked after she signed a petition calling for the release of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, who is accused of cheating on her husband and then helping to kill him.

Kayhan, an Iranian newspaper, which is under control of the government, called Bruni-Sarkozy and Isabelle Adjani, the French actress who is campaigning for Ashtina's release, "prostitutes" in an editorial, while Iranian state television accused the former supermodel of "immorality".

"Why shed your blood and deprive your children of their mother?Because you have lived, because you have loved, because you're a woman, and because you're an Iranian? Everything within me refuses to accept this," the Telegraph quoted Bruni-Sarkozy as writing in an open letter to Ashtiani last week. (ANI)
