Uganda: July 22, 2001


Uganda announced the arrest of 28 people allegedly involved in a series of bombing attacks that have killed 67 people and injured 262. The attacks began in 1997. Ugandan police also seized seven kilos of potassium chloride, six kilos of TNT, and assorted bomb-making equipment. Ugandan government officials claim the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) had coordinated the bomb-making group and said the group was part of an urban terror campaign waged by the ADF. A subsequent report said that some of the bomb-makers may have been trained in Kenya by the ADF. One of the suspects admitted to setting off a bomb on July 7 in the Ugandan town of Jinja. The is led by Jamil Mukulu.
