A pile-up on a busy highway outside the Ugandan capital Kampala left at least 20 people dead Sunday and injured several more, some seriously, police said.

"Twenty people have so far died and several are in hospital with major injuries," area police spokesman Phillip Mukasa told AFP.

"Five vehicles were involved in the accident on the Kampala-Masaka highway when a private car was overtaking many vehicles at a busy section of the road" some 150 kilometres (95 miles) south west of the capital, he added.
