Anti-Gay Mob Brutally Murdered Iraqi Boy

A photo that Hamoudi al-Mutairi posted of himself on Instagram.

Shocking video out of Baghdad that emerged over the past week shows a delicate 14-year-old boy, identified as Hamoudi al-Mutairi, being stabbed to death in the streets near his home because he was perceived to be gay. As his killers stabbed him, they taunted him and joked. He could be heard plaintively calling for his mother as he died at the scene. This photo is one al-Mutairi posted to Instagram.

Video of the attack was shot by a member of the mob that attacked the youth, and then circulated on the web.
