Reports: 2 killed, 40 detained in new gay purge in Chechnya
MOSCOW (AP) — LGBT activists said Monday that at least two people have died and about 40 people have been detained in what has been described as a new crackdown on gay people in the Russian republic of Chechnya.

Chechen authorities denied those accusations, and federal authorities conducted a probe that found nothing to support the reports.
