Mabvuto Banda in Malawi and Jonathan Clayton in Johannesburg
A trial involving Malawi's first married gay couple was adjourned today after one of the accused collapsed in court and was subjected to homophobic abuse from the public gallery.
Tiwonge Chimbalanga, who has spent more than a week in one of the country's most congested prisons, vomited and stumbled onto the dusty court floor just before the case was due to start.
As he lay on the ground he was jeered by members of the public who had crowded in to watch what has become a cause célèbre and a test case for gay rights in the African nation.
