Iran Continues to Publicly Execute Men for Being Gay

The hangings continue…

Via Proceed at Your Own Risk:

“Shahab Darvishi was charged with organising a ‘corruption ring’, deliberate assault, and ‘lavat’, which means homosexual relationship between two men or sodomy, the official news agency IRNA reported. Darvishi was hanged in the evening in Kermanshah’s ‘Freedom Square’ in front of hundreds of people, the report said.”

And Australia’s Courier Mail corrects the above report. Make that “hundreds of cheering people.”
