No toilets! 100 arrested in Uganda

At least 100 Ugandans were arrested by the local authorities, for failing to build toilets in their homes. This action was taken in the midst of a cholera epidemic in the country. Cholera has already killed 8 people and infected 164 in Uganda.

"We cannot watch as people die (of cholera)," northwestern Bulisa district administrator Norbert Turyahikayo told the New Vision daily, justifying the arrest of Ugandans found to have huts with no pit latrines Tuesday. Link
