Uganda president: sorry for inauguration stoning

Uganda's president is apologizing to foreign leaders whose vehicles were targeted with stones while driving through Kampala during last week's presidential inauguration.
President Yoweri Museveni said Tuesday that the stone-throwing brought shame to Uganda. Museveni, who has led Uganda for 25 years, was sworn in for a fourth elected term last Thursday.
Large crowds that greeted the country's top opposition leader on the same day blocked the road to the airport. Kizza Besigye returned from Kenya last week, and his arrival sparked some violence.
Museveni said the vehicle of Nigeria's president was hit by a stone, and that the car carrying Congo's president was almost hit. He apologized to the leaders for what he called "hooliganism and irresponsibility."
