International Desk
Five suspects have been shot dead by police in Uganda. 21 people have been arrested. Police in the country has launched an operation to nab the suspects after two IS-led suicide bombings. The incident took place at that time. Three civilians were killed in the IS attack.

Police spokesman Fred Enanga told a news conference on Thursday that counter-terrorism officials in the western part of the country had killed four suspected terrorists in Natoroko.

He said a man named Sheikh Abas Muhammad Kirevu was shot dead by police while fleeing to avoid arrest. Kirevu was a local Islamic leader who was responsible for reviving terrorist groups in Kampala, he said.

The country's police have been able to arrest 21 suspects in an operation against the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF). The ADF has historically been a rebel group in Uganda. They are accused of killing thousands of civilians in the eastern Democratic Republic of Congo.

The East African country has seen a spate of recent attacks. Three were killed and at least 33 were injured in what became known as the Cold War. The ADF has claimed responsibility for the attack. They have IS connections.
