CAIRO  — Iran said Monday that it had arrested two foreigners as they were interviewing the son of a woman whose death sentence by stoning on an adultery conviction ignited international outrage.

Judiciary spokesman Gholam Hossein Mohseni Ejehi said the two foreigners had entered the country on tourist visas and did not have documents to prove they were journalists. His comments were carried on the official IRNA news agency.

In Berlin, the German Journalists' Association said two German journalists were arrested Sunday while interviewing Sajjad Qaderzadeh, the son of 43-year-old Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani. The union did not name the journalists but urged Iran to immediately release them.
