Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov plans to “eliminate” the country’s gay community by the start of Ramadan, a British foreign minister has claimed.

Reports from Chechnya allege that more than 100 men have been rounded up and detained in secret prisons by authorities on suspicion of being gay in recent weeks, with many beaten and tortured. At least four men are alleged to have been killed.

Speaking in Parliament during an urgent question on the persecution and detention of LGBT citizens in the Russian republic of Chechnya, minister of state for the Foreign Office Sir Alan Duncan said he had been informed of alleged plans to “eliminate” the country’s gay community by the start of Ramadan, which commences on 26 May.
