A man has been executed in Iraq after he was found guilty of engaging in gay sex. A crowd of onlookers watched as a group of around six ISIS fighters threw the man off a multi-storey building site in Iraq. The location of the building has not been confirmed, although it is thought it could be in Mosel in the north of the country.

The man, who was wearing a highly visible turquoise jumper and dark trousers was watched by a group of onlookers – who stood at the foot of the building. The crowd included at least ten children.

Unusually for this type of execution, the man was not bound at the feet and hands.

Although the death penalty is not law in either Syria or Iraq in Islamic State controlled areas, in which they use Sharia Law as their legal system, gay men face capital punishment.
