Gays Hanged in Iran

The Iranian government executed a gay man Nov 14, at Kermanshah in western Iran. The man, identified as Shahab Darvishi had been hanged in the city for corruption, assault and “lavat” the Iranian word for sodomy.

The two teenagers shown here were executed after a religious court found them guilty of homosexuality on July 19, 2005, in Mashhad. Under the Iranian penal code, girls as young as nine and boys as young as 15 can be hanged.
