WARNING: This article contains graphic and distressing content.

Another gay man has been murdered in public by Daesh, the group known as Islamic State.

As part of its continued campaign of terror, the group has publicly executed hundreds of men accused of homosexuality, by stoning and throwing them off buildings.

The group often boasts about the executions online – showing the large crowds who gather to help stone the men to death and ‘celebrate’.

A man was thrown to his death in the Iraqi city of Rawa this week, after being accused of homosexuality.

He was led to the top of a tall building while a crowd gathered below.

The terrorists bound his hands and feet, and threw him to his death below.

PinkNews will not publish the most graphic of the pictures, which show the man’s body after the fall.

UK Prime Minister David Cameron cited the group’s persecution of gay people while building the case for intervention in Syria.

He had said:”Let us be clear: people will not return to Syria if part of it is under the control of an organisation that enslaves Yazidis, throws gay people off buildings, beheads aid workers, and forces children to marry before they are even ten years old.

“We cannot separate the humanitarian work from dealing with Daesh itself.”
