UK To Review Iraqi Gay Teen Case

The British government has agreed to review a decision to refuse asylum to a gay Iranian teenager.

Mehdi Kazemi, 19, claims that his life would be at risk in his homeland.

The teen traveled to London to study English in 2005 and applied for asylum in Britain after learning that his same-sex partner who had remained in Iran had been executed for sodomy.

When British authorities rejected Kazemi's application, he fled to mainland Europe and applied for asylum in the Netherlands.
