Two Explosions Reported In Downtown Kampala, Uganda

Reports indicate that one explosion occurred in a shopping mall near Central Police Station and another near Parliament. Office buildings were shaken when the explosions began, some witnesses say. The Daily Monitor has published a video of cars burning outside the insurance building after the explosion:NTV Uganda is broadcasting live on the parliamentary road saying the speaker and other officers had been evacuated and police had cordoned off the area. It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. The source of the explosions, or if there have been any casualties, has not yet been confirmed. Last month, two separate explosions in the country killed two people. One killed a waiter in a bar and another, a suicide bomber who had planted explosives on a bus. Authorities in the country have condemned the October blasts against Uganda's DR Congo-based Islamist rebel group, the Allied Democratic Forces. About 50 people have been arrested, and others have been charged in court, since the recent incidents.
