Ugandan army (UPDF) has killed six Al Shabab terrorists in Somalia. Army spokesperson Paddy Ankunda said two of the terrorist were captured.


One machine gun, one rocket propelled grenade, three bombs recovered from captured Shababs in Somalia.

Three Ugandan AMISOM peacekeepers were killed during an attack on the Somali Parliament last Saturday.

Philip Baligeya (WO II), Albert Onzele (WO II) and Joseph Ochaya (Pte) were killed during a fierce fight in which 13 al-Shabaab militants were gunned down. The al-Qaeda-linked insurgents have since claimed responsibility for the attack.

The fighters, donning suicide vests entered the Somali Parliament building, shortly after detonating a car bomb near the main entrance, while parliament was in session.
