TWO more Kenyans were yesterday charged with terrorism in connection with the July 11 twin bomb blasts in Kampala. They were identified as Al Amin alias Joe Kimathi, 49, a Kenyan human rights activist, and Omar Awadh, 37, a businessman and resident of Halingham in Nairobi.

The suspects were arrested last week with Mbugua Mureithi, a Kenyan advocate, on suspicion of being linked to the al-Qaeda Islamist terror group. Mureithi, who said he was in Uganda to defend terrorism suspects, was over the weekend deported to Kenya.

The three were arrested at Niagara Hotel in Najjanankumbi, off the Kampala-Entebbe highway.
