Human-rights group Amnesty International reports that Malawi is suspending its anti-gay laws until a parliamentary vote is held on whether to repeal them altogether. Same-sex relationships are currently illegal in the country, and participants in such relationships can be punished with up to 14 years in prison. Malawi has a history of enforcing these laws: in 2010, two men were arrested after getting married, but were released after an international outcry. That same year, another man was arrested for putting up posters in support of homosexuality.
