Uganda said it knew nothing about a mysterious planeload of Israeli weapons which Israel and Cyprus insisted were destined for the country, Reuter reports from Kampala. A Nigerian plane carrying the weapons returned to Tel Aviv on Sunday, five days after it became stranded in Cyprus when its pilot said he had engine trouble. Last week a Sudanese official said he suspected that the arms were destined for rebels in the south of the country.
