Arrested Shebab insurgents 'planned Uganda bomb attacks'

Ugandan police forces and security agents pictured outside one of Kampala's most prominent malls on September 13, 2014Ugandan police said Sunday that suspected Islamist Shebab insurgents arrested in weekend raids had planned to carry out bomb attacks, as the US embassy said the immediate threat had been “countered”. Police raids on Saturday came two weeks after Ugandan troops, fighting in Somalia, reportedly provided intelligence that helped US special forces kill the Shebab’s chief in a devastating air strike. “Al-Shebab planned to carry out attacks in Kampala and other towns over the weekend, but police working with sister agencies stopped these attacks and we have recovered the explosives they were to use,” police chief Kale Kayihura told AFP.
