A gay rights group called Dignity announced that it would mount protests outside the Bocaiuva do Sul city hall late last week. Berti was unavailable for comment. "The mayor has shut down city hall and disappeared," said Bocaiuva do Sul police officer Waldemar Mateus. "Even we don't know where he is."

Jamaican reggae star accused of inciting gay bashing in England LONDON — Complaints that a Jamaican reggae star incited violence against gays during visits to London are under investigation by local police, Reuters reported. Bounty Killer, born Rodney Basil Price, is a dancehall reggae artist who gained fame in 1996 with the album, "My Xperience," according to the news agency. He also has gained popularity in the United States, collaborating with Janet Jackson and some of the nation's top rap artists. But a number of complaints have been lodged against the star, alleging that he has incited homophobic violence and murder, London police told Reuters. "In a democratic society people have a right to criticize homosexuality, but they do not have a right to encourage queer-bashing," gay rights group OutRage! told Reuters. Clive Driscoll, detective chief inspector of Scotland Yard's Racial & Violent Crime Task Force, said police are delving into lyrics from several of the singer's tunes. OutRage! officials said they are concerned by lyrics such as those in ghetto slang from "Another Level," which states: "Bun a fire pon a poop and Mister Faggoty ... Poop man fi drown and dat a yawd man philosophy," Reuters reported. Uzbek leader's declaration of amnesty may help jailed gay journalist TASHKENT, Uzbekistan (AP) — Uzbek President Islam Karimov issued amnesty that would apply to some prisoners convicted of involvement in extremist groups, according to a government statement. Its phrasing makes it likely that it could be applied to jailed journalist Ruslan Sharipov, who is serving a four-year term for having homosexual sex, which is illegal in Uzbekistan. His pardon was sought by U.S. officials and international rights groups. Karimov's decree, timed to the 11th anniversary of Uzbekistan's post-Soviet constitution, would grant amnesty to those in such groups who "have firmly set on the path of correction," said the statement, which was published in official newspapers. It didn't name extremist groups or say how many convicts would benefit from the amnesty The amnesty would be applicable only to those extremists whose prison terms do not exceed 10 years. Australian man sues McDonald's over alleged anti-gay remarks ARDEER. Australia - A man who alleged that a McDonald's employee made anti-gay comments about him and a friend is suing the fast food chain, the Herald Sun of Melbourne, Australia, reported. Paul Corda of Werribee alleged that he and a friend were called "poofters" and "faggots" by an employee of McDonald's at Western Ring Road in Ardeer. He said he later was offered an apology by the restaurant manager and a meal voucher, the Herald Sun reported. Corda alleges that he ordered and paid for his food in the drive through and heard a staff member make comments into her headpiece, the newspaper reported. He now is suing McDonald's in the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribune, alleging that the company discriminated against him on the basis of his sexual orientation, the Herald Sun reported. John Whitehouse, McDonald's employee relations manager, said in a letter the worker admitted to making an inappropriate comment to a colleague, according to the newspaper. But Whitehouse said the corporation should not be held responsible for the comments of one employee. Solomon Islands officials arrest woman for being a lesbian HONIARA, Solomon Islands - The United Nations Commissioner for Human Rights is monitoring the arrest of a woman who is charged with being a lesbian, according to a report in the Herald Sun newspaper. Homosexuality is illegal in the Solomon Islands. The woman, who was not named, is charged with one count of committing an indecent practice, having sex with a person of the same gender. The Herald Sun reported the woman was refused bail after appearing in court on Monday Magistrate Jefferson Leua said the offense was a serious one and that the middle-aged, divorced mother would be remanded in custody to ensure there was no interference with witnesses.
