Al Qaeda Militants in Yemen Continue Their Targeted Killings of Alleged Homosexuals

Back in July, we reported on two Al Qaeda coordinated attacks against alleged homosexuals in south Yemen. News out of the country today indicates that another attack has been carried out, with the victim dead from gunshot wounds.

AFP reports:

Yemen"Armed Al-Qaeda suspects on a motorbike opened fire on 29-year-old Salem Ahmed Hasan in a market in Huta," capital of the southern province of Lahj, the [security] official said, adding the man died immediately.

He said the man was targeted because the attackers thought he was a homosexual.

Another four men have been killed in similar attacks on supposedly 'gay' men in Huta this year.


Although weakened, the [Al Qaeda] terror network still carries out hit-and-run attacks against army and police targets.

During their control of areas in southern Yemen, the Islamist militants imposed a strict version of Islamic law on residents, executing or lashing those they accuse of various crimes. Those accused of theft had their hands severed.

  8. They are running out of water (really, that's one of the country's main problem) so I guess false morality and fanaticism won't do any good when the collapse finally happens. Remember this, as it's gonna make the news in the years ahead.

  9. That's too bad because Yemen is so beautiful this time of year. CB is wrong. It's fear of taking it up the butt.

  11. LCR's; Religion MUST be the foundation of a Moral society, even if LGBTs are killed.

    All Other Gays; Religion is the number one cause of perpetuated intergenerational violence against LGBTs.

    What's wrong with this picture?

  12. There is no such organisation as Al Qaeda. The name was made up by the FBI and CIA. There are radical Islamists, but the idea that they belong to some insidious terrorist umbrella group is a complete fallacy.

    Wake up America.
