An image shows a woman in Iran being fed a spoonful of water before she is stoned to death under Sharia law.
The picture was taken at a protest in Colombia, where the woman allowed herself to be buried in the ground.
However, the photo is actually from a 2003 protest in Cali, Colombia, where several people buried themselves in the ground to protest the government failing to relocate displaced persons to a safe area.
This article is part of our work factchecking potentially false pictures, videos and stories on Facebook. You can read more about this—and find out how to report Facebook content—here. For the purposes of that scheme, we’ve rated this claim as false as it incorrectly states that the photo shows a stoning under Sharia law.
