ENTEBBE - Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has signed a controversial anti-gay bill Monday that has harsh penalties for homosexual sex. Government officials clapped after he signed the bill.


The bill calls for first-time offenders to be sentenced to 14 years in jail. It also sets life imprisonment as the maximum penalty for a category of offenses called "aggravated homosexuality," defined as repeated gay sex between consenting adults as well as acts involving a minor, a disabled person or where one partner is infected with HIV.
