14 year old “gay” child executed in Iraq

From Raw Story comes news that Iraqi police accused a 14 year old child of corrupting the community because he had sex with men. His punishment was to be dragged from his family's home and shot more than 4 times. 

The child's name is Ahmed Khalil.

According to international lgbt rights group OutRage! Ahmed, like too many children in our world, was prostituting himself for money to help his impoverished family.

OutRage reports that the police have been infiltrated by the Shia paramilitary Badr Corps which has been violently enforcing Sharia law.  The Shia spiritual leader, Grand Ayatollah Ali al-Sistani has issed a fatwa against homosexuals.

Ahmed was being sexually exploited by adult men in his community.  To feed his family.  And, so, he was executed. 

Local Iraqi gay activists are working to rescue children forced by poverty into selling their bodies and documenting the increase in homophobic executions.
