Gay Married Couple Arrested in Malawi


A gay couple in the southern African country of Malawi, which has severe penalties against homosexuality, have been arrested and charged with public indecency after holding a public wedding ceremony on Saturday. The men, Tiwonge Chimbalanga and Steven Monjeza, could face up to 14 years in prison.

A police spokesman told Reuters: "We arrested them last night at their home and charged them with gross indecency because the practice [homosexuality] is against the law." The men, who are due to appear in court on Wednesday, are being held in separate cells in Blantyne until their case is heard.
