Ellicott City teen hurt in Ugandan blast
A 16-year-old girl from Maryland is among the wounded in a pair of terrorist bombings in Uganda.
A family friend said Monday that Emily Kerstetter of Ellicott City, Md., was at a restaurant in the capital city of Kampala with her grandmother's church group from Pennsylvania on Sunday when the blasts occurred. Emily's injury was first reported by WMAR-TV in Baltimore.
The friend wouldn't describe the girl's injuries but said she is being flown to a trauma center in Johannesburg, South Africa, for more tests.
Family friend Nikki Liskovec says Emily's grandmother, Joanne Kerstetter, of Selinsgrove, Pa., suffered a broken arm in the blast but is well enough to accompany Emily to Johannesburg.
Liskovec says Emily's parents planned to leave Monday evening for Africa.
