Iranian man 'publicly hanged for having gay sex'

A man has reportedly been hanged in Iran for having gay sex and kidnapping two teenage boys.

The unnamed man was publicly executed on January 10 in Kazeroon, south Iran, reports the Iranian Students’ News Agency.

He was charged with having gay sex, which is punishable by death under Iran’s Sharia law, and kidnapping the two 15-year-old teenagers.

2. True, so the question is ... do they actually give the death penalty for JUST sex?

It's kinda disingenuous to make it sound like ALL he did to get the sentence of hanging was 'gay sex'. If you ALSO kidnap 15 year olds, that's uh ... not a piece that should be left out of the story.

3. The news is from "official" sources, did he really kidnap anybody?

4. Was the formal charge "having gay sex"?

 

Not that Iran is good on gay rights in any case, but it makes a difference.
