Two "suicide bummers" have been arrested after they attempted an illegal act on board a US-bound flight shortly after departure from London Heathrow airport.
The two detainees, Mohammed Hussain, 27, and Hussain Mohammed, 25, said that they were angered at the supposed immorality and promiscuousness of people in the West, and were determined to protest about it by sodomizing each other to death.
Sharp-eyed members of the public spotted the naked pair frolicking in the aeroplane cabin and alerted cabin staff. The plane was rediverted back to London where they were arrested.
So-called "suicide bummings" are common in Iraq, where often dozens of angry men will die of exhaustion after days of buggery. This is the first instance of it happening in Europe.
This follows last week's incident of "suicide masturbation", where an unnamed man attempted to abuse himself to death on an underground train in London. He has been placed in solitary confinement.
