US Embassy Warns of Terror Attack at Entebbe International Airport

The U.S Embassy in Uganda is warning of a specific terror attack on Uganda’s International airport.

A statement issued on the Embassy’s official website attributes the terror alert to the Uganda Police Force.

“The US Embassy has received information from the Uganda Police Force (UPF) that according to intelligence sources there is a specific threat to attack Entebbe International Airport by an unknown terrorist group today, July 3rd, between the hours of 2100-2300. Individuals planning travel through the airport this evening may want to review their plans in light of this information”. The statement reads in part.

The Embassy indicated in the statement that Uganda continues to be under a possibility of a terror attack “U.S. Embassy Kampala wishes to remind U.S. citizens of the continued threat of potential terrorist attacks in the country. The targets for these attacks could include hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, diplomatic missions, transportation hubs, religious institutions, government offices, or public transportation”.

Uganda has in the past been hit by terrorists. In 2010, Alshabab militants attacked football fans watching the World Cup and killed more than 80.
