Kampala - Twelve terror suspects, among them six Kenyans being held in Uganda have issued a hunger strike notice.
Muslim Human Rights Forum (MHRF) chairman Al-Amin Kimathi says the 12 who are being detained on suspicion that they were involved in the Kampala bombing in July 2010, will go on hunger strike starting Monday to protest the delay in the hearing of their cases since they were charged in 2011, Daily Nation reports.
The suspects are accusing the Ugandan government of detaining them without trial and also frustrating their efforts to be granted bail and be released from police custody.
The attacks were carried out against crowds watching a screening of 2010 FIFA World Cup Final match during the World Cup at two locations in Kampala. The attacks left at least 79 people dead and scores injured.
