Foreign Secretary on Uganda bomb attacks

The Foreign Secretary William Hague has condemned the bomb attacks in Kampala.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government

Speaking following the attacks, the Foreign Secretary said:

“I was deeply shocked to hear of the bomb attacks that took place in Kampala last night, which left many people dead and injured. I send my heartfelt sympathies to President Museveni and the people of Uganda, in particular the families and friends of those who lost their lives, and wish a full and speedy recovery to those who were injured.

These were cowardly attacks during an event that was widely seen as a celebration of African unity, and I condemn them in the strongest possible terms. The UK will stand with Uganda in fighting such brutal acts of violence and terror.”
