A British couple were killed on their honeymoon in Uganda after they were ambushed by terrorists.

David Barlow, 50, and his wife Celia, 51, were shot dead in a hail of bullets when insurgents fleeing Ugandan forces happened upon their truck at random.

Their guide 40-year-old Ugandan Eric Alyai was also gunned down before the killers, thought to be part of the ISIS-linked Allied Democratic Force, set fire to the truck and fled.

The couple had been married just a few days ago in South Africa’s Western Cape.

Their bodies and the flaming wreckage were recovered from the Queen Elizabeth National Park in the west of Uganda.
