An explosion in Uganda’s capital Kampala, that killed one and injured five, was “a terrorist act”, according to President Yoweri Museveni, who promised to hunt down those responsible.

Police said the “serious blast” occurred at about 9pm (18:00 GMT) at a popular street-side restaurant strip in Kawempe division in Kampala on Saturday.

Museveni said he had been briefed that three people “left a package” at the scene that later exploded.

He said investigators were still combing the bomb site and more details would be released later, including advice for the public in “dealing with these possible terrorists”.
