The dividing lines of Uganda's anti-gay row

Newsnight's Tim Whewell has travelled to Uganda where an attempt to punish some forms of homosexuality with the death penalty has caused outrage across the world.

The Bill proposes that the penalty for gay sex should be life imprisonment and that "serial offenders" and "aggravated homosexuality" should face the death penalty.

Some American religious leaders are calling on President Obama to condemn the Bill, brought by Ugandan evangelicals.
