Ugandan police on Monday, arrested our people for allegedly engaging in same-sex activity, three months after the introduction of draconian anti-gay legislation sparked international outrage.

The law contains provisions making aggravated homosexuality a potential capital offence and penalties for consensual same-sex relations of up to life in prison.

The United Nations, foreign governments including the United States, and global rights groups have condemned the new law, which was signed in May.

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has accused the World Bank of using money to try to coerce the government to drop the controversial legislation.
