Family tried to force gay son to marry
A Berlin court handed out fines to the family of an 18-year-old-man after they attempted to force him to marry despite being homosexual.
Nasser El-A. came out as gay when he was 15, which his Lebanese relatives found unacceptable because of their interpretation of the Muslim faith.
His family then tried to force him into marriage, to "put him back on the right path" before kidnapping him with the intention of taking him back to Lebanon.
