GOJ to develop programmes for homosexual youth

The Government says it is in the process of developing new services, initiatives and programmes to address issues affecting various sections of the youth population including Lesbians, Gays, Bisexual and Transgendered (LGBT) individuals. Youth Minister Lisa Hanna made the announcement while speaking yesterday morning at the Panos Caribbean Stakeholder Conference. She says new targeted intervention is necessary, if the Government is to adequately and effectively address the challenges, concerns and needs of the different types of youth her ministry serves. Some of the other groups include Men who have sex with Men (MSMs) and youth with sexual orientation and gender identity issues. Hanna explains that given the lack of data on LGBT youth, today's stakeholder consultation is timely as it will provide the youth ministry with a better understanding of what the issues are.

Fate of over 100 abducted Nigerian schoolgirls unclear

Mystery surrounds the fate of more than 100 teenage girls who were abducted from a school in the remote north-east of Nigeria. The military says only eight of the 129 girls have escaped, but there is no independent confirmation of this.

The militant group's name means "Western education is forbidden" in the local Hausa language. Also on Wednesday, 18 people were killed in an attack in the Gwoza district of north-eastern Nigeria
