"The Nigerian senate has passed a bill banning same-sex marriages, defying a threat from Britain to withhold aid from nations violating gay rights. The bill by Africa's most populous nation calls for a 14-year sentence for anyone convicted of homosexuality. Anyone who aids or 'abets' same-sex unions faces 10 years in prison, a provision that could target rights groups." (11/30/11)
