Brazilian President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva has offered refuge in his country to Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, the Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, a move which raised hopes that her life will be spared, reported The Guardian Aug. 1.

Lula offered Ashtiani asylum at a political rally in Curitiba, southern Brazil.

Her son, Sajad, told The Guardian that Brazil and Turkey, Iran's allies, are the only countries that can make an impact on Iran to save his mother's life.

Specific details of the asylum proposal, such as where Ashtiani might live in Brazil, have not yet been revealed.
