Security forces claimed to have foiled an imminent Shabaab terrorist attack on one of Uganda’s installations, and to have made arrests in Kampala in the case. The US Embassy warned about the possibility of an attack and said security had been stepped up around sites such as Entebbe airport.

Police have been investigating the OIC-funded Islamic University in Uganda over allegations that it was being used by extremists groups such as the Shabaab-linked ADF as a base for recruitment.
