Afghanistan conflict

Afghan LGBT rights activist Hamid Zaher reports that a young Afghan man seeking support to flee the country via social media was tricked by Taliban members who raped and beat him. Zaher says that it was already common under the governments of Hamid Karzai and Ashraf Ghani but says that the Taliban will use the same tactics to persecute homosexuals. He also expressed concern that many other gay men in the country could be similarly deceived by the Taliban.
