Russian Paper Asks Kremlin for Help After Chechen Islamic Clerics Threaten 'Retribution'

Russian Paper Asks Kremlin for Help After Chechen Islamic Clerics Threaten 'Retribution': Russia’s Novaya Gazeta newspaper has asked the Kremlin for protection after Chechen clerics threatened “retribution” for a report on the torture and murder of gay men.

The Novaya Gazeta story claimed that authorities in the autonomous, heavily Muslim Republic of Chechnya ordered a “prophylactic” sweep of gay men, sending over a hundred of them to prison camps where they were beaten, electrocuted, forced to sit on bottles – and, in at least three cases, killed.
