Uganda offers reward for bombers' capture
Rebel groups are waging guerrilla campaigns throughout Uganda
The Ugandan police have reportedly offered a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and prosecution of the culprits behind a series of bomb attacks in the capital, Kampala.
A special unit has been set up at police headquarters in Kampala, after several attacks this year which have killed at least 13 people and injured many more.
Last year, bombs planted in bars and restaurants left 13 dead, while pipe bombs placed on buses killed another 27 people.
In the most recent incidents, two bombs exploded in different parts of the city last week, killing two people.
Police say the home-made devices were deliberately planted in busy market areas to cause harm to civilians.
The various guerrilla groups have been blamed for bombings and other attacks on civilians throughout Uganda.
Many of the Kampala explosions have been blamed on an urban guerilla group with links to the ADF, and the ADF itself has claimed responsibility for certain of the blasts.
However, one of the most serious bombings, which killed four people at a Kampala football stadium in April, was the work of criminals and not rebels, according to the police.
