A 31-year-old man was publicly hanged in Kazeroon, Iran, on January 10. The charges against him included the kidnapping of two 15-year-old boys and violations of Iran’s strict Sharia-based anti-gay laws.
The Iranian Student News Agency (ISNA) reported that the man had allegedly kidnapped two 15-year-old boys — but noted that the charges of sexual intercourse with another man carried the death penalty.
The identity of the man was not revealed, and according to a report from the Jerusalem Post, the city’s residents “thanked the judiciary” for carrying out the sentence.
The Post also noted Iran’s history with regard to the treatment of homosexuals, citing a WikiLeaks dump revealing that some 4,000–6,000 Iranians convicted of homosexual infractions had been executed between 1979–2008 alone. (Source: The Daily Caller 1/29/19)
