Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni signs anti-gay bill

Uganda's leader has signed into law a bill toughening penalties for gay people but without a clause criminalising those who do not report them.
It includes life sentences for gay sex and same-sex marriage, but a proposed sentence of up to 14 years for first-time offenders has been removed.
US President Barack Obama had cautioned the bill would be a backward step.
