Zimbabwe court frees 2 gay group employees

A Zimbabwe court frees two employees of a gay organization after six days in jail on allegations of possessing indecent material and displaying a letter seen as insulting to President Robert Mugabe, an outspoken critic of homosexuality.
Ellen Chadehama, 34, and Ingatius Mhambi, 38, are employees of the Gays and Lesbians of Zimbabwe (GALZ) organization. The groups says the two were assaulted by police while in custody.
Magistrate Munamate Mutevedzi on Thursday released the two on bail of $200 each until a trial set for June 10, where they will face penalties of imprisonment or a fine.
They were arrested Friday on allegations under Zimbabwe's censorship laws.
