Uganda police hunt for suspects in IED attacks in Kampala

Read < 1 minute

Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni said security agencies have started a manhunt for two suspects accused of masterminding a string of IED (Improvised Explosive Devices) attacks in the Kampala Metropolitan area.

The Uganda Police Force released images of the pair. Police believe they are members of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) rebel group.

“The two bombs went off without harming anybody,” Museveni wrote on X, formerly Twitter.

Museveni said the security agencies intensified assaults against the ADF in DR Congo and carried out several attacks in the past week. He further urged people to be vigilant in public spaces.

The police said that they were running a joint operation with the Democratic Republic of Congo to apprehend the suspects.
