Mozambique decriminalises homosexuality and abortion

Mozambique decriminalised homosexuality on Monday when a new penal code came into force that swept away old Portuguese colonial laws, in a victory for campaigners for gay rights in Africa. The new penal code, which was announced last December by the then president, Armando Guebuza, also decriminalises abortion after lobbying by civil rights organisations.
