Uganda was on high alert Friday over fears of an attack similar to the bloody mall assault by Somalia’s Shebab fighters in neighbouring Kenya, where investigators continue to recover charred body parts.
At least 67 people were massacred in the upmarket Westgate shopping centre in Nairobi when gunmen stormed the crowded complex on September 21, firing from the hip and hurling grenades at shoppers and staff.
On Thursday, investigators found a charred skull in the wreckage of the mall, Kenyan police said, adding that DNA testing would be carried out to help identify it. Automatic rifles were also found.
