NAIROBI, July 3 (Reuters) - The United States warned its citizens in Uganda on Thursday about a “specific threat” of an attack on Entebbe International Airport, which is near the capital Kampala, according to a message on the U.S. Embassy website.
It said information from Uganda’s police force indicated the attack could take place between 9 p.m. and 11 p.m (1800 GMT and 2000 GMT), adding that citizens planning to travel at that time might consider reviewing their arrangements.
A spokesman for Uganda’s Civil Aviation Authority said it had issued an alert on Wednesday, but did not give details. (Reporting by Elias Biryabarema; Writing by Edmund Blair, editing by John Stonestreet)
