Uganda police busts 'terror cell,' 19 arrested

  • Ugandan police have reportedly seized explosives from a suspected cell of the al-Shabab militant group and arrested 19 men.

    The militants were planning terror attacks in Kampala, Uganda’s capital, authorities said.

    Uganda issued a high alert after Ahmed Abdi Godane, the co-founder and leader of al-Shabab, was killed in Somalia in a US air strike.

    Rose Namayanja, Uganda’s information minister, has appealed to people to stay vigilant as the anti-militant operation “is still going on.”
