Saudi police tortured and killed two transgender Pakistanis on Tuesday after arresting them for wearing women’s clothing.

The Express Tribune reports that police arrested 35 people on charges of cross-dressing during a raid on a rest house.

Two of the people arrested, identified as Amna and Meeno, died in police custody after being packed in sacks and beaten with sticks.

Being LGBTQ is illegal in Saudi Arabia, and it’s punishable by imprisonment, fines, flogging and even execution.
