(Newser) – After calling for the hanging of 100 “top gays and lesbians” in Uganda—which spurred attacks on gays—a tabloid in the country has published another list, this time of 10 homosexuals, their addresses, and alleged details about their anatomy, CNN reports. The paper's 22-year-old editor says he discourages attacks, but wants to fight gays seeking "converts in schools." Meanwhile, a bill calling for the death penalty for homosexuality continues to work through Uganda's legislature.
