KAMPALA -- Ugandan police raided a U.S.-funded HIV project for "training youths in homosexuality," the government said, weeks after the president signed a widely criticized anti-homosexuality law.
The Walter Reed Project, which provides treatment for people living with HIV/AIDS, said it had suspended its operations after one of its staff was briefly detained in the raid on Thursday.
It appeared to be the first such move since Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni in February signed a bill that calls for "repeat homosexuals" to be jailed for life and requires people to report gays.
