A 14-year-old boy has been stabbed to death in Iraq, after being targeted by youths suspecting he was gay – who then filmed his dying breaths while shouting homophobic slurs at him.
Hamoudi was set upon by an unknown number of assailants, who stabbed him repeatedly in the stomach.
The video footage, which has been shared on social media, shows Hamoudi lying on the ground and bleeding profusely.
A voice off camera asks him a series of questions, including ‘who is your boyfriend?’, Kurdistan24 reports. Before the camera cuts out, he can be heard begging to be taken to hospital, adding ‘I want my mum’
