Uganda's government said Monday it "will continue to suppress" the public activities of homosexuals and that a rehabilitation program had been developed to allow them to "lead normal lives again." Ugandan police last week arrested about 20 people attending a gay pride event at a nightclub in the capital, Kampala. They were questioned and released hours later, although some said they had been assaulted by police officers. "The police ordered the inmates to beat me," one activist, Pepe Onzima, said.
