African Union Strongly Condemns Terrorist Attacks in Uganda

ADDIS ABABA – Chairperson African Union Commission has strongly condemned the deadly terrorist attacks in Uganda’s capital Kampala on Tuesday.

At least three people are killed and 30 others injured in the blasts near parliament and the city’s police Headquarters after suicide bombers targeted Kampala.

“The AU stands in total solidarity with the people and Government of Uganda following terrorist attacks  in Kampala that I condemn in the strongest terms,” said Chairperson Moussa Faki Mahamat.

“Our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wishes for a full recovery to the injured,” he added.

The attacks came within three minutes of each other. More bombs have been found in other parts of the city, officials said.

Officials blamed the attacks on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an armed group based in the DR Congo.

Reports say this is the second suicide attack that the authorities have blamed on the ADF. Last month several people were injured when a suicide bomber blew himself up in a bus near Kampala.
