Sean Stone, son of U.S. film director Oliver Stone, arrives for a news conference in Tehran February 17, 2012. Stone, a defender of Iran's nuclear programme, converted to Islam on Tuesday while filming a documentary in the Shi'ite-dominated state. Following his conversion, the 27-year-old told Reuters television in an exclusive interview that the reason behind his decision to become a Shi'ite was to help rebuild the image of Islam in the west.
