Senegal gay jail terms overturned

Senegal's court of appeal has quashed January's convictions of nine men for homosexuality and ordered their immediate release.

The men were sentenced to eight years in jail after being found guilty of "indecent conduct and unnatural acts".

Most of the men belonged to an association which was set up to fight HIV and Aids.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Senegal, a predominantly Muslim country, where gay people remain marginalised.

Re: Senegal gay jail terms overturned

I actually have a new topic to post here and now I don't know whether I should post it.
