gay man in Iraq tortured and killed

29 05 2009

Religious militias have become more powerful since the U.S- led invasion of Iraq. It is believed that as many as 30 gay man have been killed in the last 3 months for being gay(or perceived to be). Homosexuality is prohibited almost everywhere in the middle east and is punishable by up to 7 years in Iraq. Since Saddam Hussein is out of power though, life for gay seems to be even harder then before.
