** Clinton to Discuss Regional Security in Uganda**
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is traveling to Uganda for talks with President Yoweri Museveni.
Clinton will use the talks Thursday to discuss Uganda's role as a key U.S. partner in regional security, as well as to encourage stronger democratic institutions and human rights.
On Wednesday, Clinton warned African leaders that they must respect their people's rights or be destined to lose power.
She said during a speech in Senegal that Africans are demanding change in countries where a small elite prospers while most of the population is stuck in poverty.
** Afghan Forces Thwart Attack on Kabul**
Afghan officials say security forces have thwarted an attack on the capital, Kabul, after killing at least six insurgents in an early morning gunbattle.
The officials said Afghan forces raided a compound in eastern Kabul early Thursday where the insurgents gathered to prepare for an attack. A gunbattle broke out, lasting for several hours until the militants were killed.
The Afghan forces found a vehicle packed with explosives along with other weapons at the site.
The Taliban said there was no such raid involving its fighters.
Also Thursday, NATO said two of its coalition service members were killed by a roadside bomb in southern Afghanistan. It did not release any further details about the attack or the identities of the soldiers.
