Uganda foils Somalia Shebab cell plotting 'imminent attack': US

Ugandan police forces and security agents pictured outside one of Kampala's most prominent malls on September 13, 2014Ugandan security forces stopped a cell of Somalia’s Al-Qaeda linked Shebab insurgents apparently “planning for an imminent attack,” the US embassy said Saturday. Arrests were made, police said, in raids 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. “Ugandan authorities reported the discovery of an Al-Shebab terrorist cell in Kampala,” the US embassy said in a statement, adding that forces were working to see “whether there are members of the cell still at large.”
