Kenyan and Ugandan security forces have stepped up patrols in the wake of the attacks on Paris.
Uganda's army spokesman Lt Col Paddy Ankunda said that the "threat of terrorism is real". The head of Kenya's police, Joseph Boinnet, echoed those comments on Twitter and called for the public to be alert. Both Uganda and Kenya have experienced attacks by the Somalia-based militant Islamist group al-Shabab. In April this year 147 people died when a university campus in the Kenyan town of Garissa was attacked.
