Zanzibar arrests 20 for ‘homosexuality’
people have been arrested on Tanzania’s semi-autonomous archipelago Zanzibar for alleged homosexuality, a police official said yesterday, in the latest crackdown on the country’s gay community.
“They are implicated in homosexuality. We arrested them and are busy interrogating them,” said regional police commander Hassan Ali Nasri on state television.
He said the 12 women and eight men were arrested in a hotel where they were undergoing training from an NGO that works on HIV/Aids education programmes. (AFP)
