AN Iranian man convicted of sodomy was publicly hanged in the western town of Kermanshah, the official news agency IRNA reported.

The man, identified as Shahab Darvishi, was charged for “moral corruption, battering and sodomy”.

The public hanging drew hundreds of cheering people. The execution brings to at least 117 the number of people executed in Iran this year.

Amnesty International has said there were 94 executions in Iran in 2005.

Capital offences in the Islamic republic include murder, rape, armed robbery, apostasy, blasphemy, serious drug trafficking, repeated sodomy, adultery or prostitution, treason and espionage.

Mahmoud Asgari, 16, and Ayaz Marhoni, 18, were publicly hanged on 19 July 2005 - charges of homosexuality

So it sucks to be gay and an Iranian at the same time. But there are uglier things than being gay in Iraq.

I mean, doesn't being a hairy camel humper suck already?

Iran, Iraq. What's the diff? And who cares?

Dude, try to be more updated. This was more than a year already. But hey, it still is an eye opener.

We'll take it.
