    Business along Kampala – Bombo road was today morning brought to a halt following a bomb scare.

    The anti terrorism squad has been deployed at Bhatia Towers near Kampala Pentecostal Church (KPC).

    Many shops have been closed down after police cordoned off the areas to start the search for any bombs.

    Police said that an anonymous person called Central Police Station and reported a suspicious 'object wrapped in a polythene bag'.

    “We dispatched the police Anti Terrorism Unit personnel at the scene at Bhatia Towers and they removed the object. We are still analyzing it,” Deputy Police spokesman Richard Musisi told Daily Monitor.

    Security has been on high alert following threats by the Al-shabab a Muslim extremist group in Somalia who vowed to attack Uganda last week.

    A senior leader of the al-Shabab militant group last week said that the rebels would strike within Uganda and Burundi in retaliation for civilian deaths allegedly caused by the African Union Mission in Somalia.

    The rebel leader accuses the peacekeepers under AMISOM, of being responsible for the shelling of a packed civilian area on Thursday last week which reportedly killed more than 30 people.

    However, President Yoweri Museveni said that Al-Shabaab would pay dearly for any attack attempted on Ugandan soil.
