Russian thugs have threatened to kill gay football fans who come to the World Cup. Pride in Football – an alliance of LGBTI football fan groups – has had to report death threats to police. Emails have been sent to the group warning them LGBTI people will be ‘hunted down and stabbed’. Joe White, Pride in Football’s campaign leader, said the threats were being taken seriously. ‘We’ve had people say that if they find us they’ll stab us, so it’s been a mixture but they’re being dealt with seriously and those investigations are still ongoing,’ he said.
