Two explosions, believed to have been from bombs, have struck the Ugandan capital of Kampala, leaving what appears to be at least two casualties.

Twin bomb blasts have rocked the Ugandan capital of Kampala this morning, leaving at least two confirmed dead and many injured, according to local news reports. The explosions, one of which occurred outside a nearby police station and the other close to the parliamentary building, caused cars in the proximity to go up in flames. Eyewitness videos posted on social media appear to show at least two bodies, with ambulances arriving as bomb experts began to comb the scene behind a police cordon. No official casualty numbers are confirmed, nor has a statement been issued by authorities yet.

This is a developing story.
