Third Bomb Attack in Under a Week Kills Two Children in Uganda

HeadlineNov 01, 2021

In Uganda, a bomb attack has killed two children. The explosive was reportedly shaped like a jackfruit and was given to the children while they were playing. It’s the third bomb attack targeting civilians in Uganda within the past week. The Islamic State claimed responsibility for at least one attack in Kampala last weekend, which killed one person and wounded three others. Ugandan officials say they are investigating a group called the Allied Democratic Forces, which is suspected of ties to ISIS.
