Lilongwe – In a rare challenge to rising anti-gay legislation in Africa, the UN Aids task force and human rights groups will launch a court battle against Malawi’s laws criminalising homosexuality.

They will also challenge the convictions of three men jailed in 2011. Homosexuality carries a maximum prison sentence of 14 years in Malawi.
