Uganda Bombing Update- Death Toll Rises; Investigators Find Explosive Vest; Somali Al-Shabaab Islamists Claims Responsibility

Police in Uganda had discovered and vest laden with explosives and ball-bearings at a dance hall in the capital city of Kampala, leading them to believe a third venue was targeted unsuccessfully in Sunday's twin bombings. The ball bearings were consistent with shrapnel and debris investigators found at the scene of the rugby club and Ethiopian village blast sites.

They say the discovery of the unexploded suicide vest has led them to detain 4 people, although the inspector general of police Kale Kaihura declined to release their names or nationalities.
An Al Shabaab spokesman in Somalia claimed responsibility for the bombings. "We warned Uganda not to deploy troops to Somalia, they ignored us," said Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage [Wow- a literal Islamic Rage Boy- NANESB!] al-Shabab's spokesman. "We warned them to stop massacring our people, and they ignored that. The explosions in Kampala were only a minor message to them. ... We will target them everywhere if Uganda does not withdraw from our land."
The death toll from Sunday's attacks has been revised upwards to 76, including an American aid worker from Delaware. This would make it the deadliest terror attack on East Africa since the 1998 twin bombings of the US Embassies in Nairobi and Dar Es Salaam.


  1. Shabaab and AQ of the Arabian peninsula are going to be the next fertile grounds for terrorism

  2. Agreed. The Same lawless conditions in which the Taliban and al Qaeda flourished in Afghanistan have been in place in Somalia for just as long....
