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.
