At approximately 1000 local time (0700 UTC) on 16 November 2021, three suicide bombers detonated explosives outside the Central Police Station and near the Parliament building along Parliamentary Avenue in the capital Kampala. Meanwhile, authorities arrested a fourth attacker before he could detonate his explosives. At least three civilians were killed, and approximately 30 more suffered injuries in the attacks. Police officers have cordoned off areas throughout downtown Kampala while they search for additional explosives and have warned that the threat remains active. A police spokesman blamed the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF) – a militant group with alleged ties to the Islamic State – for the attacks, but no group has claimed responsibility. The ADF previously claimed responsibility for a bombing at a restaurant in Kampala’s Komamboga suburb on 23 October. The most recent attack follows at least three smaller attacks around Kampala in late October. However, it indicates a possible escalation by militant groups, as it was the largest such attack to date and appears to have been more sophisticated in its execution than were the previous attacks.
