Fire at royal tomb prompts Uganda clash

Security forces in Uganda have killed at least three people during clashes in the capital Kampala.

Members of the Buganda tribe have been rioting after a fire destroyed the tombs of five traditional Bugandan kings.

Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, the president of Uganda, has promised to investigate the cause of the fire but the latest incident has worsened relations between the government and the country's largest ethnic group.
