Sorry for the hiatus–I was camping and then visiting family in before leaving the country for the year-long reporting expedition.

Today brings news that the cops in Zimbabwe arrested members of the group Gays and Lesbians Association of Zimbabwe during a party at its headquarters. From Radio VOP:

Harare, August 13, 2012 – Police arrested 44 members of the Gays and Lesbian Association of Zimbabwe (Galz) at their Milton Park offices at the weekend.
The members were arrested while holding a party at the association’s offices.

They were released on Sunday without charge.
