Travel advice: Gambia
Gay travellers to Gambia run a severe risk of being beheaded and should leave the country forthwith. Gambian President Yahya Jammeh has threatened to behead homosexuals and told a political rally that gay people had 24 hours to leave the country. He promised "stricter laws than Iran" on homosexuality and said he would "cut off the head" of any gay person found in The Gambia.
