Terrorist groups have been targeting the east Africa region in recent years with Kenya and Uganda being targeted the most. The Al-Shabaab and The Islamic State have been behind most attacks in the region.
A few days ago a bomb explosion was reported in Kampala Uganda. The Islam state have since claimed responsibility. According to a statement released by the terrorist group, the attack was targeting top Uganda security agencies who had met for a meeting.
Barely 72 hours since the attack, another attack was reported in Uganda. According to a report by the Daily Monitor Police in Uganda have cordoned off a section of the road at Lungala, Mpigi district on Kampala-Masaka highway after an explosion was reported on a bus belonging to the swift bus company.
More details to follow.
It's still unclear what has led to the increasing number of attacks in the Uganda capital in the last few hours.
Meanwhile, share with us your thoughts on the matter kindly.
