A Ugandan newspaper published a list of what it calls the country’s “200 top” homosexuals Tuesday, outing some Ugandans just one day after president Yoweri Museveni enacted a harsh anti-gay law. The tabloid published the names and some pictures of alleged homosexuals in a front-page story under the headline: “EXPOSED!” The list includes a prominent gay activist who says the law could spark violence against homosexuals.

Meanwhile the U.S. government has begun a comprehensive review of its bilateral relationship with Uganda in the wake of this new law. The White House condemned the new law and says it is contrary to international human rights laws. Officials and activists in Washington are now concerned about whether it will undermine efforts to combat HIV/Aids. CCTV’s Daniel Ryntjes reports.
