Gunmen shot dead Monday a top Ugandan state prosector whose cases include the trial of 13 men accused of involvement in Al-Shebab bomb attacks that killed 76 people in 2010, police said.
Joan Kagezi, acting assistant director of public prosecution, was assassinated by men on a motorbike early evening on Monday, Kampala police spokesman Patrick Onyango said. "They were trailing her on a motorcycle.... They shot her dead," Onyango said.
