Gay Ugandan Activist Killed
Late Wednesday evening, David Kato, a popular Ugandan gay rights activist, died while being taken to the hospital with head wounds caused by a hammer. Kato’s photo had been published by an anti-gay newspaper near the words “Hang Them,” but police said Thursday that his homosexuality had nothing to do with the murder. Outraged activists are calling for an investigation. Kato had received many death threats previously.
