Ugandan authorities have foiled a planned imminent attack by the Somali militant Islamist terror group al-Shabab, the U.S. Embassy in Uganda said Saturday. In statements on Twitter and its website, the embassy said Ugandan forces had conducted operations against members of the terror group in the capital, Kampala. "We are continuing our engagement with Ugandan authorities as we seek to assess the scope of the disrupted al-Shabab terrorist plot and whether there are members of the cell still at large."
