Islamic State Ally Blamed for Deadly Bombings in Ugandan Capital


KAMPALA, Uganda—Suicide bombers set off two powerful explosions in the center of Uganda’s capital during rush hour in what police said was a terrorist attack carried out by a local ally of Islamic State.

At least three people were killed and 33 were injured in the Tuesday morning attacks, which took place within about 550 yards and three minutes of each other in Kampala’s heavily guarded business district, police spokesman Fred Enanga said. Three suspected suicide bombers also died in the blasts.
