An Iranian was almost stabbed to death in a Dutch migrant centre after fellow asylum seekers reportedly found out he was gay.
Police initially thought the attack on the 25-year-old in the town of Bellingwolde in the north-eastern part of the Netherlands was drugs-related.
But an LGBT organisation says it has witness statements confirming that the assault was because the victim is gay.
A shocking picture has emerged of the Iranian lying in a pool of his own blood shortly after the knifing.
