At a school outside the capital of Kampala, three Ugandan pupils have been killed after a vehicle crashed into their classroom.

Reports say at least 18 additional students got hurt in the incident on Tuesday afternoon at Kasaka Secondary School.

The vehicle tore up a portion of the roof after entering the structure about halfway.

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

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

The school is located in the country’s central district of Gomba, about 130km (80 miles) away from Kampala.

Learning has been suspended for week and the students have been sent home.
