On December 10, 2014, the Al-Furat province of the Islamic State (ISIS) (straddling parts of eastern Syria and western Iraq), announced that it had executed a man convicted of homosexuality.

The announcement read: "Following the example of Muslims Caliph Abu Bakr Al-Siddiq (ruled 632-634), the Islamic court in Al-Furat province sentenced  a man who performed acts of the people of Lot [i.e.,homosexual acts] to be cast off the highest place in the town and then stoned to death. Allah’s command [is valid] in both the past and the future."

The accompanying photos show the man being cast off the rooftop by a band of masked and armed ISIS fighters, followed by his stoning.
