There is panic in the Kampala central business district (CBD) following twin explosions at the IPS building opposite Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA), Quarter Guard at Central Police Station (CPS) Kampala this morning.
The blasts went off a few minutes after 10 am triggering panic in the city. Our reporter at the parliamentary avenue, says that three vehicles around Jubilee Building caught fire. Two police officers could be seen lying lifeless on the ground near the blast scene between Jubilee Tower and Queen's Chambers.
The heavy blast near CPS shook several nearby buildings, shattering several glass windows and doors. Police have now cordoned off the parliamentary avenue from the main gate of parliament and the ministry of Justice. Security has restricted access to the area and only journalists and security officers with clear identification are allowed to access the area of the blast.
It is still unclear how many people have died in the blast but our reporter says pieces of human flesh and blood are visible at the scene of the blast. Police have brought sniffer dogs to the scene to try and help them get some clues on the incident. Unconfirmed reports indicate that two unexploded bombs were found in Nakasero market.
