Saudi Arabia recently beheaded 37 men in a mass execution. Most were suspected spies and terrorists allegedly working on behalf of Iran, but one of the men “allegedly admitted to having sex with four of his co-accused ‘terrorists,’” reports Metro UK. The executed men were part of the country’s Shia minority. Court documents accused the men of hating the Sunni sect, the state and its security forces. However, the accused “gay man” denied all the charges against him — his lawyer called his confession a fabrication. Metro UK writes, “The executions were carried out on Tuesday in the cities of Riyadh, Mecca and Medina. One of the prisoner’s had his body and severed head pinned to a pole in a public square.”
