Eritrea expels 'immoral' people


The African nation of Eritrea expelled three foreign InterContinental hotel workers in October over "a question of immorality," Information Minister Ali Abdu Ahmed told the Agence France-Presse news wire.

At least one of the hotel workers was said to be openly gay.

"They exercised immoral activities, which invade our tradition and culture," Ahmed said.

An InterContinental spokeswoman said the employees were re-assigned to hotels in other nations.

AFP said homosexuality is not illegal in Eritrea.
