President Robert Mugabe of Zimbabwe has again strongly attacked homosexuals.

The president - who has made similar attacks in the past - was making a speech of condolence at the home of Charles Chikerema, the editor of the state-owned Herald newspaper, who died on Tuesday.

Mr Mugabe said the sexual activities of homosexuals were un-Christian, and invited the punishment of God.
