New gay list published in Uganda

A list of 10 gay and lesbian people in Uganda was published encouraging citizens of the African country to report them to the police.

The tabloid, Rolling Stones, which has no relation to American Magazine, published names, addresses, and photos of each person next to a banner that said "hang them."

At least four people have been attacked since the magazine published its first list that included the top 100 names, the BBC reported.

The editor of the magazine, Giles Muhame, 22, said he only wants the homosexuals to be reported to the police, but not attacked.

According to CNN a bill is currently going through the Ugandan government that would make homosexuality illegal and punishable by death.
