Iran has arrested two Germans who interviewed the son of Sakineh Mohammadi-Ashtiani, a woman sentenced to death by stoning, public prosecutor Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejeie told local media on Monday.

"The initial investigation shows these people had entered the country as tourists" and asked Mohammadi-Ashtiani's son some questions, the prosecutor was quoted as saying by ISNA news agency, before adding that "these two foreign nationals are now in custody."

A rights group said on Monday that it feared two German journalists had been arrested in Iran along with Mohammadi-Ashtiani's son Sajjad and her lawyer.
