Uganda's Daily Monitor raided over Museveni 'plot'


The Ugandan government is being accused of interfering with press freedom after police raids on the offices of two of the country's most popular newspapers.

Two radio stations have also been taken off air, the state-owned New Vision newspaper reports.

Last week, newspapers reported claims allegedly made by an army general that those opposed to President Yoweri Museveni's son succeeding him risk being killed.

Mr Museveni has been in power since 1986 and elections are due in 2016.
