The Islamic State (IS or ISIS) has released new disturbing images showing large crowds gathering to watch the latest execution of a man they accused of being a homosexual, throwing him to his death from the top of a tall building as children and parents eagerly watched below.
The victim was bound before the ruthless thugs as they read out his charges, claiming they had found him guilty before he plunged to his death in front of the crowd gathered in the Iraqi city of Mosul.
The announcement is done over a microphone system in an attempt to maximise publicity about the shocking abuse of human rights in the city.
The crowd appears to be predominantly made up of militants, many carrying their weapons and wearing their uniforms.
Standing near the front of the crowd, a number of children can be seen waiting for the punishment, each dressed in military style thobes.
Unusually, ISIS have not published photos of the moment the man is pushed off the building. Instead the final image embodies the heinous nature of the bloodthirsty jihadi group.

Photographed from the top of the building from which he was pushed, the man’s crumpled body lies motionless on the hard tarmac.
The news comes as ISIS faces increased military threat from Turkish forces after the government stated plans to create a buffer zone along the border.
