A horrific video of a teen boy dying in the streets of Baghdad has gone viral after being posted to social media by his attackers, who killed him for being gay.

The victim is said to be a 15-year-old, known as Hamoudi al-Mutairi, who had earlier posted pictures challenging gender stereotypes. According to some media reports, Mutairi had been on his way home in Baghdad’s Yarmouk neighborhood when his assailant, in pursuit, caught the teenager and began repeatedly stabbing him. As the young man is seen lying on his side, covered with blood, a voice, presumably that of his attacker, asks what his name is, where his home is, and other details about him. One of the questions could be translated either as “who is your boyfriend?” or “who is your [male] friend?” Confused and in shock, the victim then asks the man behind the camera where all the blood covering his abdomen was coming from. “Your guts are out,” the voice replies, in a joking manner. Mutairi then asks to be taken to a hospital and the video ends with him saying, “I want my mom.”’

The video is posted to Facebook but due to the disturbing content we are not linking to it. The descriptions above are accurate.
