Cameroon is suffering under an "anti-homosexuals apartheid," a lawyer who has spent a decade defending gays and lesbians in the West African nation, where same-sex relations are illegal [five year prison term -- added by LH], has said.

"When a country uses weapons, the police and all available legal and prison means against a section of its population, while it has a commitment to protect," it is apartheid, Alice Nkom told the AFP news agency in an interview.

Sexual relations between same-sex couples are currently illegal in at least 76 countries, 36 of which are in Africa, according to Amnesty.
