By vanrozenheim

(UK) - Around 50 students, some from as far away as Manchester, Salford and Hull, protested outside the Royal Embassy of Saudi Arabia in London this afternoon following the sentences passed earlier this month on two young Saudi Gay men. The pair were sentenced on October 2 to 7,000 lashings each in al-Bahah following conviction for ‘sodomy’. Amid chanting and singing, Claire Anderson and Scott Cuthbertson, LGBT officers with the National Union of Students, handed-in a letter of protest to an Embassy official. The protest was supported by LGBT Labour and Gay human rights group Outrage!
