LGBT+ activists were attacked and arrested by police after staging a peaceful march through Kakuma, a UNCHR refugee camp in Turkana County, Kenya. Around 40 LGBT+ activists took part in the march on Tuesday (December 11) through the camp to protest against poor conditions, inadequate healthcare, and discrimination. A member of Refugee Flag Kakuma, which campaigns for the rights of LGBT+ refugees in Kakuma, alleged to PinkNews that the marchers were first attacked by the local community and then by police.
