Protesters Disrupt Trial of Gay Men

Thousands surrounded a court in Nigeria’s northern city of Bauchi and launched stones into the building where seven men were on trial for belonging to gay organizations. The judge stopped the trial and the men were returned to their prison cells. Nigeria’s President Goodluck Jonathan passed a law earlier this month saying gay marriage is illegal.  (Photo: AP Photo/Sunday Alamba)
