Mohammad Mostafaei
Iranian lawyer Mohammad Mostafaei has been reunited with his wife and 7-year-old daughter in Norway.

Mostafaei, who defended Sakineh Mohamamdi Ashtiani, the woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, fled Iran after his wife and her brother and father were arrested to put pressure on him.

A Norwegian website has posted a video (in English) of the reunion at Oslo airport.
