KAMPALA---Uganda s president test-
ed for HIV in public yesterday to
encourage millions of untested people
to check their status, a critical step to
stemming the spread of the virus in
the East African country.
Public leaders rarely test for HIV in
public in Uganda, despite recommen-
dations from health workers that it
would set a good example in a country
that has seen HIV infection rates
Uganda was once a global leader in
efforts to fight Aids.
Not all government officials at the
event in the capital, Kampala, joined
the president in testing.
Ugandan officials have said they want
to test 15 million people by the end of
2014. They acknowledge it will be hard
to reach that target, the reason they
want the president to be a "role model."
"Therefore, all Ugandans, test (for
HIV). Find out your status and let the
state and health workers manage you
accordingly," said President Yoweri
The HIV rate in Uganda stands at
7.3 per cent, up from 6.4 per cent in
2005, according to a 2011 survey. Ugan-
dan officials who presided over its
reduction from 18 per cent in 1992 to
6.4 per cent in 2005 say they are con-
founded by the increase. (AP)
Obama, who promised
his health care over-
haul would allow
Americans to keep
their health insurance
plans, has apologised
to the at least 3.5 mil-
lion people who are
losing their coverage
because their plans
have been determined
as substandard under
the new law.
Obama is facing
enormous criticism and
political heat for having
repeatedly made a
promise he couldn t
keep. That has been
compounded the bun-
gled October 1 online
roll-out of the pro-
gramme known as
Obamacare, after severe

Americans wanting to
buy or change cover-
Obama, in an inter-
view Thursday with
NBC News, pledged to
find fixes that might
allow people to keep
their coverage that had
While apologising to
Americans who lost
their policies, the pres-
ident did not address
directly his promises in
the years leading up to
Obamacare s debut.
"I am sorry that they
are finding themselves
in this situation based
on assurances they got
from me," Obama said.
The Affordable Care
Act, passed by Con-
gress in 2010, is likely
to be the legacy-setting
legislation of Obama s
It was designed to

tens of millions of
Americans who did not
have health coverage.
MILAN---Police in Sicily have
detained a 34-year-old Somali alleged
to be the organiser behind the smug-
glers ship packed with migrants that
sank off the coast of a southern Italian
island, killing more than 365 migrants.
Police yesterday announced the
detention of Mouhamud Elmi Muhidin,
who faces charges of kidnapping, sexual

Authorities also detained a 47-year-
old Palestinian for allegedly aiding illegal
migration. The boat packed with more
