This shocking video sparked international outrage

A viral video out of Banda Aceh, Indonesia, depicting two gay men being beaten by vigilantes, has caused human rights groups from around the world to speak out in anger. The graphic video shows the two men, who were meeting in their private home, being beaten and assaulted by a group of men for having homosexual relations. In this particular part of Indonesia, Sharia homosexuality is punishable by law.

After being assaulted at their residence and taken to a nearby police station, the two men could now face 100 public lashings for their ‘crime.’

WARNING: The following video is graphic and disturbing.
