Some of the 10 suspected terrorists of Somali origin appear at Buganda road magistrates court on September 24, 2014. Ugandan police carried out a wave of arrests and reportedly found explosives in the capital Kampala on September 13, 2014 just hours after the US embassy in Uganda told its citizens to stay indoors because of fears of an 'imminent' attack.
