Stoning or lapidation is a form of capital punishment: a group of people throws stones at the convicted person, until this person dies. Today, it is mostly used in countries which follow sharia law. For example if someone does adultery according to the Qur'an, Bible (Old Testament) , and Torah they will have to be stoned until they die from the stones.[1][2][3]
