Russian gays marry, will seek asylum in Argentina
Two Russian homosexuals married Tuesday in Argentina and said they would seek asylum from the violence they fear back home in the Olympic city of Sochi, joining a growing number of other gays seeking marriage and refuge abroad.


Alexander Eremeev and Dmitry Zaytsev were wedded before a judge at a civil registry in Buenos Aires, where they were helped by rights activists who want Argentina to become a refuge for Russians and other nationalities who fear persecution at home because of their sexual orientation. (AP)
