Two sharia courts in northern Nigeria have suspended the trials of 10 Gay men because they fear lynch mobs will attack the defendants,

A previous session of the sharia court in Bauchi City was disrupted by just such a mob, who pelted the court building with stones when the presiding judge refused to turn over the defendants for immediate stoning.

One defendant was already convicted and publicly whipped.

To be proven, the charge of sodomy, like adultery, requires the testimony of three reliable witnesses or a voluntary confession. If convicted, Gay men may be stoned to death,
