Blogging Could Get You Killed

“The Iranian parliament is set to debate a draft bill that would add a number of crimes to the list of those that can result in execution, among them “establishing weblogs and sites promoting corruption, prostitution and apostasy.” Apostasy means the abandonment of a religion. The official Iranian news agency reports that the bill is intended to “toughen punishment for harming mental security in society.”

That said, friends from the Digg community plead that you not believe everything on the net. From what I gathered, confirmed sources were hard to find.
