Al Qaeda Militants in Yemen Kill Man After Accusing Him of Being Gay: Report

A pair of Al Qaeda militants in Yemen shot and killed a man because they suspected he was gay, according to a police source, AFP reports:

YemenThe attackers from the Ansar al-Sharia group, which is on the US terror list, opened fire at 20-year-old Hashem al-Asmi late Monday in the provincial capital of Huj, the source told AFP, adding that the gunmen fled on their motorbike after killing Asmi.

The attackers who "accused the man of being gay… belong to Ansar al-Shariah," the source said on condition of anonymity.

Ansar al-Sharia is the local branch of Al-Qaeda in Yemen where the network, although weakened, is still active mainly in the southern and eastern parts of the country.

    Al Queda has nothing to do with it. That was just homo-bashing (or worse, killing someone for an unrelated reason, and using homosexuality as a pretext) and getting away with it, and now a young man is dead. The guys who did it would have done it anyway. Will they be brought to justice? No.

    @Sean, Joel, and Jackfkntwist: I told you so. They hate anyone who’s not like them. The Koran is racist and homophobic, and Osama bin Laden considered us morally equivalent to drunks and gamblers.

    No this is not war, this is a mopping up operation. Militant Islam has won complete and utter control over the Middle East and North Africa. Only tiny Israel stands against it. Yemen will be a sharia law islamo-fascist state forever and gays there are as good as dead. Liberals support this.
