At least 11 people have died in the recent unrest in Kampala, hospital official have said. The clash between government police and supporters of the Baganda tribal ruler erupted after its leader planned to visit the flashpoint town of Kayunga.

AFP - At least 11 people were killed in the violent protests that erupted this week in Kampala, the director of the main hospital in Uganda's capital, Iga Matovu, told AFP on Saturday.
  
Five died on Thursday, and six on Friday, when police clashed with supporters of Ronald Muwenda Mutebi, traditional ruler of the Baganda tribe, the doctor said. An earlier police toll put the number of dead at five.
