Egypt Arrests Seven Men Seen in Gay Marriage Video

Details here from AFP:

The seven were arrested on Saturday after appearing in a video showing two men celebrating a marriage ceremony and exchanging rings surrounded by friends.

"Nine of the 16 participants were identified in an investigation and seven were arrested," MENA reported, without specifying whether the two men at the centre of the ceremony were among those detained.

The seven were remanded in custody for up to four days, accused of "incitement to debauchery" and "publishing indecent images," MENA said.

It's important to remember that the military junta currently in charge of Egypt isn't exactly our friend, or an exemplar of good governance. But it's just as important to imagine what would have been been likely to happen to those men if President Obama's preferred government, the Muslim Brotherhood, were still in charge of that country.
