Chechens tell of prison beatings and electric shocks in anti-gay purge: ‘They called us animals’

At least once a day, Adam’s captors attached metal clamps to his fingers and toes. One of the men then cranked a handle on a machine to which the clamps were linked with wires, and sent powerful electric shocks through his body.
