Indonesia wants to criminalise same-sex relations

    In Indonesia, proposals to criminalise same-sex relations have come under criticism from the UN human rights chief.

    Zeid bin Ra'ad Al Hussein says he has raised the issue with Indonesian President Joko Widodo during a visit to the world's largest Muslim-majority country.
