The United States warned its citizens in Uganda on Thursday about a "specific threat" of an attack on Entebbe International Airport.

The airport is near the capital Kampala, according to a message on the US Embassy website. The force indicated the attack could take place between 1800 GMT and 2000 GMT.

It said it was information by Uganda’s police, adding that citizens planning to travel at that time might consider reviewing their arrangements.

A spokesman for Uganda’s Civil Aviation Authority said it had issued an alert on Wednesday, but did not give details.
