Police in Vietnam's Ho Chi Minh City raided a fitness center Thursday and arrested 30 gay men, who they say were having sex in the facility's sauna and private massage areas, Agence France-Presse reports. The fitness center's director was among those arrested, police said. Although homosexuality is not officially outlawed in Vietnam, most officials in the Communist country consider it a "social evil."
