Iraqi Police Kill 14-Year-Old For Being Homosexual

"Human rights groups have condemned the 'barbaric' murder of a 14-year-old boy who, according to witnesses, was shot on his doorstep by Iraqi police for the apparent crime of being homosexual." The original article used the term "gay," but I never use that term, so I changed it for this post. I hate euphemisms. The proper designation is homosexual both for male and female. Period.

The article was "seeded" on Newsvine today by Salam Pax. It was originally published in The Independent Online Edition. [Read Article]

At least Salam has finally posted something. You can check his blog -- link on sidebar at right -- for his Newsvine posts, or his Newsvine Home Page.
