With the latest raids, Egypt now holds the dubious record for the country with the largest number of reported arrests for homosexuality in such a short time, in a single country in recent times.

Several sources reported today that the Bab el-Bahr hammam bath house in Cairo was raided by police last night, on December 7th, at about 10 pm local time, resulting in dozens of men, or 40 men, arrested for “perversion.”

J. Lester Feder, BuzzFeed News Foreign Correspondent reported that:

Egyptian police raided a bathhouse in Cairo on Sunday night and arrested a large group of men accused of “perversions,” according to Mona Iraqi, a reporter with the program El Mostakbai of the Al-Qahira wal Nas channel.

Iraqi posted about the raid on her Facebook page along with several pictures of men, mostly naked, who were apparently caught during the roundup…
