Revelation 6:3-4 NCV When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature say, "Come!" Then another horse came out, a red one. Its rider was given power to take away peace (prosperity, rest) from the earth and to make people kill each other (butcher, slaughter, to maim violently, in streets), and he was given a big sword (assassins sword, terrorist, loud, mighty, sore afraid).
Security is being increased at shopping centers and other public locations after U.S. intelligence discovered plots for a terrorist attack similar to the attack last month in Kenya that killed over 66 people.
The BBC is reporting that cars are being searched along with bags of pedestrians in Kampala. Government spokesman Ofwono Opondo told the BBC he was thankful the U.S. told them of the impending attack.
Somalia’s al-Shabab terrorist group, who carried out the Kenyan attack, launched a terror attack in Kampala in 2010 that killed more than 70 people. Two restaurants filled with soccer fans watching the World Cup were hit with homicide bombers.
Al-Shabab has threatened Uganda because they have contributed troops to the African Union force helping Somalia’s legitimate government destroy the terrorist group.
