A spokesman for the Ugandan army, said the tourists came across two armed rebels.

"They fired on the vehicle and a Briton by the name of Keith Steve Willis was killed instantly. The rebels robbed everything.They abducted the rest of the people in the vehicle during the ambush but we have rescued them
