Kampala: A controversial newspaper has for the second time published photos, names and home addresses of gay Ugandans.

The paper's managing editor, Giles Muhame, said today he plans to continue publishing photos of gay men to "help them live responsible lives."

A rights group is seeking an injunction to bar the paper from publishing faces of homosexuals in future editions.

Earlier this month the paper published a list of 100 gay Ugandans. Rights activists said the story prompted attacks against at least four people.

In October 2009 a lawmaker introduced a bill that would impose the death penalty for some homosexual acts and life in prison for others. The bill has not come up for a vote.
