Suicide bombers have targeted the Ugandan capital Kampala, killing at least three people and injuring more than 30 others, police say, according to the BBC.

Three attackers on motorbikes blew themselves up near parliament and the city’s police headquarters.

The number of dead is likely to rise, with the blasts leaving body parts strewn in the streets.

Officials blamed the attacks on the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an armed group based in the DR Congo.

The group has not yet commented.

“The terrorists keep on changing tactics and now they’ve graduated to suicide bombings,” army spokeswoman Brig Gen Flavia Byekwaso told BBC Focus on Africa radio.

The attacks came within three minutes of each other. More bombs have been found in other parts of the city, officials said.

“The bomb threats are still active, especially from suicide attackers,” said police spokesman Fred Enanga.

“We believe there are still more members of these domestic terror cells, especially the suicide bomb squad that has been created by the ADF.”
