More than 100 people arrested for holding “depraved and decadent” party in Bahrain.

Manama Bahrain has arrested 127 people, mainly gays from the Gulf countries, for holding a “depraved and decadent” party.

The revellers hired a sports hall in Hidd, a conservative village on Muharraq island in the north of Bahrain, and organised on Wednesday evening a fee-paying party that brought together gay men from the Arabian Gulf countries.

Most of the gays were between 18 and 30 years old and one Lebanese and one Syrian were among those arrested following the police bust, Al Ayam daily reported on Friday.
