Cameroon Blasts Reporting of Gay Activist's Death

Cameroon lashed out at the media on Friday for its reporting on the recent killing of a prominent gay activist and warned that future "provocative commentary" on the case would be illegal. In the first official response to the killing of Eric Ohena Lembembe, government spokesman Issa Tchiroma said in a statement that journalists had engaged in "speculation and witch-hunting" in their coverage of the case, which has drawn expressions of concern from the U.S., France, Britain and the U.N.
