Islamic extremists have beheaded three gay men in Iraq.
In pictures published on social media, it shows men blindfolded and knelt in front of a huge crowd in an unidentified province in the northern city of Nineveh.
A masked executioner, dressed in black, wields a long, rusty and bloody sword.
While the bodies were not shown, it is claimed the three young men were killed for 'blasphemy'. Under Islamic State-imposed sharia law, homosexuality is punishable by death.
