Kenya on high alert after Uganda attack

Kenya’s government has said security agencies are on high alert following Tuesday’s terror attacks in the capital of neighbouring Uganda.

Government spokesperson Cyrus Oguna urged citizens to be vigilant and report any suspicious people.

The alert comes days after three prisoners who were convicted for terrorism-related charges escaped from a maximum security prison just outside the capital Nairobi.

In Uganda, three suicide bombers detonated explosives at two sites in Kampala killing themselves and three other people.

The Islamic State group has said it was behind Tuesday’s blasts.

US Secretary of State Anthony Blinken is in Kenya for regional security talks with President Uhuru Kenyatta.
