Video - Nigeria's anti-gay law denounced

In Nigeria, a gay man has been lashed 20 times, the first conviction for sodomy since President Goodluck Jonathan signed a law criminalising homosexuality earlier this week. Human rights activists said hundreds of gay men have been arrested and tortured by police. The international community said not only is the new law against fundamental freedoms, it will also affect services of millions of Nigerians living with HIV AIDS, as they scare away people to seek treatment, incase people think they are gay.
