Uganda Confronts Terrorism 8 Years After World Cup Attack

Places and venues without access control measures in neighboring Uganda were not allowed to show the final world cup in heightened security measures.

Counter-terrorism police, bomb squad and the military enhanced security across the state with both foot and motorized patrols to prevent any possible terrorist attack.

Despite the hyped Word cup finals, Uganda is still privy of possible terrorist attacks on the country like the July 2010 Al Shabaab offensive that saw 76 football fans killed as dozens suffered serious injuries.

The militia group carried out twin bombings at Kyadondo Rugby Club and Ethiopian Village Restaurant causing massive losses in the capital Kampala.

The country is part of deployed peacekeepers under the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM).
