Five UK Muslim men will face trial for handing out anti-homosexual leaflets asking for gays to receive the death penalty.
Five men are on trial in Britain for allegedly distributing leaflets calling for gay people to be killed, charged under a new law that makes such actions a hate crime.
The men allegedly gave out flyers titled “The Death Penalty” that showed a noose and said gay people would be punished. Two other leaflets were used to publicize a protest against a gay pride march in the central English city of Derby in 2010.
They face up to 7 years in jail if found guilty of hate crime.
