Man perceived to
be gay attacked in Jamaica

It took gunshots fired by police in full riot gear to quell an angry mob at a Jamaican university after a man allegedly made unwanted sexual advances toward a male student. According to the JamaicaGleaner newspaper, a student at the University of the West Indies' Mona campus claimed the man made the advance in a school bathroom Wednesday evening. The Gleaner reports that the student then alerted other students, and a large crowd gathered, chasing the man and throwing stones at him. When campus police tried to take the man into custody, students began throwing stones at the officers. The mob only began to disperse when one of the officers fired a gunshot into the air. A police inspector told the Gleaner the man in question is in custody and could face charges. In Jamaica homosexuality is illegal and can carry a prison term of up to 10 years. (Sirius OutQ News)
