Shelter in Europe Court Orders Asylum for Persecuted Gays

An EU court ruled Thursday that gays and lesbians persecuted in other countries have the right to asylum in Europe, as long as they fulfill certain conditions. The decision came in a case involving three African men seeking safe haven in the Netherlands.
The European Court of Justice has ordered that asylum-seekers facing real persecution because of homosexuality must be provided protection.
