Hundreds of protesters descended upon Charlottesville, Virginia, on August 12, 2017 for a “Unite the Right” rally. 
The rally was dispersed by police minutes after its scheduled start at noon, after clashes between rallygoers and counter-protesters, and after a torchlit pre-rally march Friday night descended into violence.

ISIS Militants Stone Gay Syrian Teenager To Death

ISIS: Stoned to death for being gay
The Islamic State (ISIS) extremists have stoned to death a teenage boy accused of homosexuality in the Mayadin city of Deir ez-Zor province.

Jamal Nassir al-Oujan, 15, was arrested on charges of being gay on Saturday. 

The Sharia Court accused him of sodomy and sentenced him to death by stoning.

An eyewitness told ARA News:

“Al-Oujan was brutally stoned to death by IS militants in Jaradiq square in the Mayadin city on Monday afternoon. Also, some civilians were forced to participate in stoning the victim. The brutal scene has shocked all residents of Mayadin.”

Ahmed Ramadan, media activist and head of the campaign ‘Deir ez-Zor Is Being Slaughtered Silently’, said: “The radical group [ISIS] has violated all human rights by carrying out brutal atrocities against civilians, punishing people on baseless charges only to show off its power over unarmed, peaceful civilians.”

In January, a 15-year-old boy was thrown from a roof in Deir ez-Zor after he was discovered engaged in a sexual act with an ISIS leader who wad then later executed.
