Counter-terrorism police detonate another bomb

The Joint Security operatives have detonated a rusty bomb discovered in a bush in Sembabule district on Wednesday evening.

The rusty bomb classified as a projectile was taken by the Counter-Terrorism police to a safer place where it was detonated.

Police Counter-Terrorism and the Bomb Squad personnel responded to a distress call from residents in Nakasagazi village, Kasongi Parish in Kawanda sub-country to retrieve a bomb that was discovered in a forest.

The rusty metallic device was reportedly first discovered by children who had gone to collect firewood abandoned in the forest.

The children, who believed they had found a worthy item, carried the device to a nearby butcher to be weighed before they could sell it off as scrap in exchange for meat.
