A crucial court ruling on the use of anal examinations to determine the sexual orientation of people in Kenya has been delayed until Thursday.

The judge in Mombasa said on Monday that the ruling is not ready.

A defence lawyer said the mass shooting at a gay club in Orlando in the US was discussed off-the-cuff and the case is now certainly more sensitive.

Two men had gone to court to demand that the tests be declared unconstitutional.

They alleged they were forced to undergo tests following their arrest in February 2015 on suspicion of homosexual activity.

Homosexual acts are illegal in Kenya, punishable by up to 14 years in prison.
