A Ugandan tabloid has published a list of what it called the country's "200 top" homosexuals the day after the country's president signed an anti-gay law.
The Red Pepper newspaper published the names, and some pictures,in a front-page story under the headline: EXPOSED!
The list included prominent Ugandan gay activists such as Pepe Julian Onziema, who has repeatedly warned that Uganda's new anti-gay law could spark violence against homosexuals.
ITV News' Africa correspondent, Rohit Kachroo, tweeted that Amnesty has called the list 'chilling'.
A day after Uganda's president signs anti-gay bill, local tabloid prints list of 200 gay Ugandans. Amnesty calls it 'chilling'
Ugandan president Yoweri Museveni enacted a bill on Monday that punishes gay sex with up to life in jail - a measure criticised as draconian in a country where homosexuality had already been criminalised.
A spokesman for Ugandan police Patrick Onyango said no homosexuals have been arrested since Museveni signed the bill.
