Police in Kampala have deployed heavily at various Mosques and selected embassies in Kampala ahead of a planned demonstration by Muslims over Prophet Mohammed portrait.
Security at different Mosques has been beefed up after Muslims threatened to go to the streets immediately after Juma prayers protesting against a video that they claim belittles Prophet Mohammed.
A police spokesperson Vincent Sekate told New Vision Friday that they were set to meet various Muslim groups to urge them to keep law and order.
Security at Old Kampala mosque is very tight with Mambas and police officers deployed in every corner.
Journalists with ameras have also been denied access to the mosque to capture the proceeding during Juma prayers.
As global Muslim anger mounts, huge protests are expected today (Friday) across the Muslim world against the anti-Islam film and cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed (PBUH) in the French magazine.
Protests began in Pakistan where angry demonstrators set fire to two cinemas in Pakistan's northwestern city of Peshawar.
Western missions across the Islamic world are on high alert ahead of Friday prayers, which are often followed by protests.
The video that was produced by Americans has caused chaos in different Arab countries and more than 3 Americans have been killed.
