Three Ugandan students were killed after a lorry rammed into their classroom at a school near the capital, Kampala.

At least 18 other learners were injured in the incident at Kasaka Secondary School on Tuesday afternoon.

The lorry got nearly halfway into the building and tore up part of the roof.

Uganda police said the lorry driver lost control and drove through the school fence before hitting the school’s computer laboratory which was occupied by students.

The driver, a 26-year-old man, has been arrested to help with investigations, police said.

Learning has been suspended for a week in the school located in the country’s central district of Gomba, which is about 130km (80 miles) away from Kampala.
