|Murder of a gay man by ISIS in front of a baying crowd|
The man was thrown feet first into the middle of a baying crowd and left to die
Horrific photos have been revealed of a murder of a gay man by ISIS in front of a baying crowd.
Blindfolded and bound, the victim was taken to the top of a tall building. The man was then thrown feet first into the middle of the street and left to die.
On each photo, the caption reads: ‘The execution of the judgment of God on the acts of the people of Lot.’
These pictures were posted on a JustPaste page by the Islamic State’s province of the Euphrates, in reference to the river than runs through Syria and Iraq.
While it is not clear where or when these pictures were taken, human rights activists believe they originate from either the Syrian city of Al-Bukamal or the Iraqi town of Al-Qa’im.
Last month, the United Nations Security Council were urged to take action to support the victims of ISIS in Iraq and Syria.
Jessica Stern, executive director of the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission, said LGBTIs need to be relocated and urged countries to provide refuge and assistance.
ISIS have branded LGBTI people the ‘worst of creatures’ – something many Muslims have criticized saying these are extremists misinterpreting the Qu’ran.
