Iraq: gays and "emo's" targeted, especially in Shiite neighborhoods

CNN is reporting the targeting of gay and "emo"-dressed people in Iraq, particularly in Shiite neighborhoods, in this story (authored by Mohammed Tawfeeq), link. Google chose the article for its own news feed to account holders.

"Emo" refers to a style of mod western dress with young people that some consider "blasphemous".

The "new" Iraqi government had denounced the style of dress.
