(BBC) – Ugandan police harass and physically abuse gay people in custody, a report by a human rights group has said.

Chapter Four Uganda documented several cases of men suspected of being homosexual having intrusive physical examinations.

Aronda Nyakairima told the BBC that the Ugandan government did not discriminate against anyone.
