Ugandan president signs anti-gay bill, defying the West

Published: 02.24.14, 18:16 / Israel News

Uganda's president signed a law imposing harsh penalties for homosexuality on Monday, defying protests from rights groups, criticism from Western donors and a US warning that it will complicate relations.

 

The new bill strengthened existing punishments for anyone caught having gay sex, imposing jail terms of up to life for "aggravated homosexuality" - including sex with a minor or while HIV positive. (Reuters)
