The Ugandan Police have declared that seven people were killed and 106 others detained by security officers during operations linked to three suicide bombings in the country last week.

The ISIL (ISIS) terror group claimed responsibility for the attack that happened on November 16, which killed seven people and injured many more. In the attack, it was said that the suicide bomber blew himself up at the entrance of a police station in the centre of Kampala and three minutes later two other suicide bombers exploded along the road to the parliament.

Fred Enanga, the Police spokesperson declared Monday that a total of 106 suspects linked to the attack have been arrested. Enanga said those arrested were involved in terrorist financing and mobilization of a rebel group called Allied Democratic Forces (ADF).

The ADF was founded in Uganda in the 1990s and on many occasions waged war against the government of the country. The group has been active in the deaths of thousands of civilians.
