Israel's Netanyahu Arrives in Uganda to Start 4-nation Tour

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has arrived in Uganda, the first leg of his tour of Africa during which he will also visit Kenya, Rwanda and Ethiopia.

Netanyahu was welcomed at Entebbe International Airport Monday by Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni and other government officials.

Netanyahu will participate in activities to mark the 40th anniversary of an Israeli military mission to rescue the Israeli passengers of a hijacked airliner at Entebbe. Netanyahu's brother, Yonatan, was killed in the July 1976 raid.

Later on Monday Netanyahu will attend a summit of regional leaders focusing on security.

In exchange for its expertise in security and other fields, Israel wants African states to side with it at the U.N., where the General Assembly overwhelmingly recognized Palestine as a nonmember observer state in 2012.
