Tensions high after Uganda fire

Questions raised over what caused royal tombs blaze.

     

    In Uganda questions remain over whether a fire that destroyed a world heritage site near the capital, Kampala, was deliberate.    

    The blaze at the royal tombs of the Buganda kingdom has increased tension between Uganda's president and the influential Baganda tribe.

    A senior Bugandan official has told Al Jazeera he believes the fire was arson.
