The authorities in Uganda have uncovered a terrorist cell which they believe was planning an imminent attack.

The US embassy in Kampala said the cell belonged to Somali Islamist group al-Shabab, but this has yet to be confirmed by Ugandan police.

The embassy earlier warned US citizens in the capital to stay at home during a police operation to uncover the cell.

Ugandan police say they have increased security in public places across Kampala, and made several arrests.
