At least four men accused of being gay have been executed by Islamic State (ISIS) over the weekend.
Pictures have emerged which show two men being thrown to their deaths, believed to be a couple, from a building in Iraq.Speaking to ARA News an eyewitness said that two young Iraqi men were brutally thrown to their deaths from a tall building.
The eye-witness said,
“On Sunday afternoon, Daesh (ISIS) called on the people of Mosul to gather in the square of Bab al-Toub in order to witness the execution of the two allegedly (gay) men.”
They are just the most recent victims in a long list of men, accused of being gay to be executed. Last month it is alleged that IS fighters executed 10 people including a 15-year-old boy on charges of homosexuality.
Civil rights activist Raed Ahmed told ARA News that ISIS was accusing men of being gay on “superficial information” and without investigation.
