Homosexual activities performed by those with HIV, or that involve a disabled or elderly person. "Attempted homosexuality" is also punishable by law, meeting up to 10 years in prison, while "attempted aggravated homosexuality" can be met with up to 14 years.

Revision by daikman. giving more information about what is punishible by death. And changing the status to "death penalty as punishment" because homosexual activity is only not punishible by death in very restricted circumstances. Only first time offenders who do not have HIV would be imprisoned, the rest could be killed. I think this is extreme enough for us to say that the punishment is death, rather than the ambigous "other penalty" the satus is currently set as. By saying "other penalty" it implies that the penalty is neither death or imprisonment.
