Border agency accused of "illegal" deportation of gay Ugandan

A gay man has been removed from the UK and deported back to his native Uganda in what his supporters call an illegal act.

John "Bosco" Nyombi, 38, was due to be deported last week. He fears he will be persecuted on the grounds of his sexuality.

Homosexuality is illegal in Uganda, and gays caught by the police can face a life sentence in prison.
