US intelligence has warned Uganda and Americans living in Uganda of an “imminent” Kenya mall-style attack which has put Uganda officials on high maximum alert.
Americans in the capital Kampala have been warned to avoid crowded places although officials admit they have no data on a location or time of the upcoming attack.
Via Jihad Watch who quotes NBC News:
“Our intelligence and that of the Americans show an imminent terror attack is likely,” Patrick Onyango told Reuters.
A statement from the U.S. Embassy in Kampala said that they were continuing to assess “reports that a Westgate-style attack may soon occur in Kampala.”
The statement added: “Embassy officials are sharing all information with the Ugandan authorities. At this time, there is no further information on timing and/or location of this attack.”
