The article “Anti-gay mob beat 7 men; probe faults Nigerian response” about the Jan. 12 attack in Nigeria has been removed from this blog, at least temporarily.
The article was based on an unfinished, draft version of a report prepared by investigators from the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) and the Improved Youth Health Initiative, an LGBTQ organisation working in Eastern Nigeria. The IGLHRC said that release of the draft report was premature.
Watch for renewed coverage of the incident when the report is finished.
