247inafrica: Ten Tanzanian Men Arrested Over Gay Wedding 

Ten men have been arrested for allegedly conducting a same-sex marriage ceremony on the Tanzanian island of Zanzibar.

The arrests were made on Saturday night at a beach resort, a senior police officer told the BBC.

In recent years there have been a number of measures that appear to have targeted homosexuals in Tanzania.

But this week the Tanzanian government distanced itself from anti-gay rhetoric from a prominent politician.

No charges have yet been brought against the men, all Tanzanian, who are being held at a police station.
