UK Warns Against Travel To Uganda Park After Deadly Attack

The United Kingdom on Wednesday advised its citizens to avoid Uganda’s famous Queen Elizabeth National Park after three people, including a British national, were killed the previous day by ADF rebels.

In its advice to travellers, the British government “advises against all but essential travel to this park” in the south-west of the country, which is very popular with tourists.

“If you are currently in the park, you should follow the advice of the local security authorities. If you are able to do so safely, you should consider leaving the area”, they added, stressing that “the assailants are still at large”.

The Ugandan authorities announced on Tuesday evening that three people, two British and South African nationals and their Ugandan guide, had been killed while travelling in Queen Elizabeth Park, on the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC).

The police attributed the attack to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), a militia group based in the east of the DRC that has pledged allegiance to the Islamic State (EI) group.
