Isis fanatics have reportedly executed four men for homosexuality in IraqReuters

Islamic State (Isis) fanatics have reportedly executed four people for being gay in the Iraqi city of Mosul, according to unconfirmed reports.

The victims were hurled from the roof of a former government building in the city, which is under the control of the Muslim extremists.

The head of the local security commission told Spanish news agency EFE that the four alleged homosexuals fell eight storeys to their deaths.

Under strict Islamic law, homosexuality is punishable by death and IS have imposed brutal sanctions on anyone found to have breached the group's edicts on sexuality.

If verified, then the punishment would echo a previous execution by IS, in which a man was thrown off a rooftop for committing 'blasphemy.'
