KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Human Rights Watch called Monday on the Afghan government to reject a proposal to reintroduce public stoning as a punishment for adultery, but the Justice Ministry denied that such a law had been submitted.
The human rights organization said that a working group led by the Justice Ministry that is assisting in drafting Afghanistan's new penal code had proposed provisions on 'moral crimes' involving sex outside of marriage that call for stoning.

But Mohammad Ashraf Azimi, the head of the Justice Ministry's punishment laws department, said such a proposal had not yet been submitted for review.
"As a member of the department for the punishment laws, I haven't seen this part of the law they are mentioning," he said. "I don't know where they found it and why they are emphasizing it. We are the people working on it and we haven't seen it."

With at least three stadium falls this year, hopefully the NFL will be looking further into stadium safety.

In addition, Harlee Bradford, a Marine who completed most of the required training before sustaining an injury, is expected to graduate with the following class. There are 19 additional female Marines attending the infantry school in later classes.
While the School of Infantry, the Marines' training course for the enlisted ranks, can now boast of its first female graduates, the Marines' officer training course has not yet had a woman successfully complete training since they first began attending last year.
Although the three Marines who graduated Thursday successfully completed the demanding training course, meeting the same requirements as their male peers, they will not be allowed to serve in infantry roles. Marine Corps regulations still restrict which positions women can serve in, a policy that is under review and expected to be amended based on evaluations of the pilot program being run in training environments like the infantry school.
