Uganda briefly closes main expressway after bomb scare
Uganda’s police on Wednesday briefly closed a busy expressway that connects the capital, Kampala, to the country’s main airport after a security scare.
A bomb squad was deployed to investigate the Entebbe expressway before it was cleared for public use, according to police.
Motorists were diverted to the old road that runs near the expressway until investigations ended and normal traffic flow was restored.
“We would like to applaud our bomb squad and crisis intervention teams… The suspicious object was removed and the highway reopened,” police said.—BBC
