The US has warned its citizens in Tanzania to be cautious after the commercial capital Dar es Salaam announced a crackdown on homosexuality, a criminal offence in the country. In an alert on its website late on Saturday, the US embassy in Tanzaniaadvised Americans to review their social media profiles and internet footprints. “Remove or protect images and language that may run afoul of Tanzanian laws regarding homosexual practices and explicit sexual activity,” it said. The alert said any US citizen who was detained or arrested should ensure the Tanzanian authorities informed the embassy.
