(07-03 18:51)

The US embassy in Uganda warned Thursday of a "specific threat... by an unknown terrorist group'' to attack the airport serving the capital Kampala.
The alert, published on the embassy's website in the east African nation, followed a warning by US authorities on Wednesday that security at Middle East and European airports with direct US flights needed to be stepped up.
"The US embassy has received information from the Uganda police force that according to intelligence sources there is a specific threat to attack Entebbe International Airport by an unknown terrorist group today, July 3rd, between the hours of 2100-2300,'' the statement said. --AFP
