Fire at Uganda tombs sparks clashes

Tensions heighten between government and Bugandan kingdom after heritage site is burnt.

    Security forces in Uganda have killed at least three people during clashes with rioters in the capital Kampala.

    Members of the Buganda tribe have been rioting after a fire destroyed the tombs of five traditional Bugandan kings.

    Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda, has promised to investigate the cause of the fire but the latest incident has worsened relations between his government and the country's largest ethnic group.
