The Kenyan detectives dispatched to Uganda will be joining a three-man team of detectives from America's Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) dispatched there to lead the deadly probe that has sent chilling waves in the East African nation and her borders.

Kibaki commended the country's commitment to the desire and struggle for peace through peacekeeping missions in Somalia.

The development came as senior security chiefs met in Nairobi late Tuesday to discuss the implications of the twin bomb blasts which ripped through crowds watching a World Cup final match in two social places.

The meeting was chaired by Nairobi Provincial Commissioner James Waweru and attended by district commissioners and divisional police chiefs.

Sources at the meeting said it was agreed that adequate security should be maintained in all parts of the city, particularly at social places and crowded areas like bus parks which are common targets of terrorists.

According to the Standard, the officers wanted to review security measures to deter any such acts in the city. Insiders said the meeting had been summoned to specifically discuss the threat of terrorism in Nairobi.

"Given there were substances like detonators found in Kampala, it was necessary to meet and chart the way forward," said a senior official, who asked for anonymity.
