Local Man Headed to Uganda in Wake of Attacks

Jesse Coker of Exeter, RI, has been planning and waiting since September for his Peace Corps trip to Uganda, and is set to leave for his two-year assignment next month.

Then, over the weekend, news spread of a series of bomb attacks in the African nation.

As Coker and his other volunteers get ready for their work in Uganda, another thought weighing on their minds is the threat of further terrorism in the region.

ABC6 News Reporter Erin Logan spoke with Coker about his upcoming trip, and his concerns while in the region.
