Uganda alert as US warns of ‘Westgate-style’ attack

UGANDACape Town – Security has been beefed up in Uganda following a US warning of a terror threat similar to last month’s attack on a shopping mall in neighbouring Kenya by al-Qaeda-linked militants al-Shabaab, a report says.

BBC said on Friday that a government spokesperson Ofwono Opondo was glad that the US had passed on its intelligence.

Al-Shabaab attacked two restaurants in Kampala in 2010 and killed more than 70 people.

The militants have also claimed the September attack on the Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi, in which at least 67 people were killed.
