Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) activists today condemned the violent assault of two young men after they were beaten up by several unknown assailants for allegedly having sex in a car. LGBT activist Numan Afifi Saadan, who shared the video, which has since gone viral, chastised the act of violence against the LGBT community and said it needed to stop.  “THIS IS OUTRAGEOUS! I categorically condemn this anti-gay violence and call on the authority to investigate on this hate crime. Enough is enough. p.s. If anyone knew the victims, please let them know that we’re here to give support. We need to stand up against injustice,” he said in a tweet.
