Gay Wedding Guests Arrested in Kenya


Police in Kenya arrested five people due to attend a secret same-sex wedding in a resort town on the Indian coast on Friday.

According to Agence France-Presse, residents of the town, joined by Muslim and Christian clerics, learned about the wedding and notified police. Homosexuality is illegal in Kenya.

Police raided the house and arrested the guests, but the couple to be married escaped to the coastal town of Mtwapa, north of the city of Mombasa.

The suspects, believed to be all men, were between the ages of 20 and 35, according to AFP. An official said they would "undergo a medical examination before we charge them with homosexuality."
