Libyan Extremists Kidnap Homosexuals

Libyan extremists threatened to mutilate and execute 12 men abducted last Thursday from a private party in Tripoli's Ain Zara district, Libya Herald reported on Monday (November 26th).

The so-called "Private Deterrent Force" posted images of the alleged homosexuals on its Facebook page. The extremist group is reportedly part of the "Nawasi Brigade", which has been accused of involvement in the desecration of Sufi shrines in Tripoli.
