An Uzbek student was stripped of his clothing, handcuffed, beaten, and raped at gunpoint with a bottle by a group of vigilantes who targeted him because he is gay, according to a report from Radio Free Europe.
The assault took place on September 11 in Novosibirsk, the capital of Russia’s federal district of Siberia. One of the six or seven attackers recorded the event in a series of short video clips currently circulating on the mobile phone application WhatsApp.
From the RFE report:
[The victim] is asked to identify himself and is stripped of his clothes, which are later burned. He is then handcuffed, beaten, insulted, and threatened with a gun. Ultimately, he is forced to sodomize himself by sitting on a bottle, which is then pushed with a bat.
The man, visibly terrified, weeps throughout much of the ordeal.
