Mary Mohammadi, the 21-year-old Iranian Christian convert imprisoned earlier this year for criticizing the Iranian government, has been sentenced to three months in prison plus 10 lashes.

Mohammadi had allegedly participated in demonstrations critical of the Iranian government after it mistakenly shot down a passenger airliner in January.

"There was no evidence against me, so I ought to have been acquitted, but instead I was sentenced not only to imprisonment, but also flogging," Mohammadi said.
