UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson slams 'outrageous'

UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson slams 'outrageous'
Russian opposition newspaper Novaya Gazeta broke the news earlier this month that more than 100 gay men have been detained in Chechnya “in connection with their non-traditional sexual orientation”.

The disturbing reports, since corroborated by human rights groups, also alleged that the men are being held in secret concentration camp-style prisons where they face torture and abuse.
Chechnya is part of Russia but has substantial autonomy.
UK Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson condemned the purge today.
