The attacks followed a report that suspected the two gunmen had fired on South Sudanese workers, whom they said had been being exploited in the industry in the northern country.
The U.N., which has criticised South Sudan for violence against the nation’s women, said on Friday that it was investigating whether any Sudanese workers were at work during the attack in Kampala.

The United Nations said on Friday that about 140 Sudanese workers had been killed and 300 police were seen on the night of Friday at various checkpoints. There were no signs of injuries, despite calls from leaders on both sides for calm.
The violence erupted after a meeting of top business leaders and South Sudanese government ministers to resolve the dispute.
“The issue of sexual employment within South Sudan cannot be postponed unless Sudan has taken measures against trafficking in women and girls, particularly women,” South Sudanese civil service chief Chaih said.
