Iran's state TV says it will air new footage of an Iranian woman sentenced to death by stoning for adultery, the latest in state-orchestrated broadcasts on the case that has raised an international outcry.

Press TV says the footage will be aired late Friday and that it will show Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani at her home in northwestern Iran, recounting her alleged crimes and details of her husband's murder.

The TV says the 43-year-old mother, who remains in prison in the city of Tabriz, was accompanied by her son for the filming. Her son and lawyer were arrested in October, along with two German journalists.
