Blindfolded and forced to their knees, three men are executed by ISIS for homosexuality as the crowd cheers on each blow.
Chilling new images have emerged of three men accused of homosexuality and blasphemy being forced to their knees and publicly beheaded by a sword-wielding Islamic State executioner.
Photographs of the barbaric murders show the blindfolded men kneeling in the centre of what appears to be a traffic roundabout with a crowd of people looking on as a masked executioner stands by with a long, rusty blade.
After an elderly man uses a microphone to read to the crowd from his notes, the executioner then steps forward with the blade poised above the men’s heads in the unnamed city in northern Iraq.
Accompanying captions said the trio were then beheaded – two for engaging in homosexual acts and the third for alleged blasphemy – but there were no images released of the actual beheading.
