uganda bombing.jpgReports from Kampala say Uganda has made arrests following Sunday’s twin bomb attacks in the capital which killed 74 people watching the final World Cup match on TV.

 

A government spokesman said an unexploded suicide-bomb belt was also found at a new site.

“Arrests were made late yesterday after an unexploded suicide bomber’s belt was found in the Makindye area (of the capital Kampala),” said government spokesman, Fred Opolot.

 

On Monday, Somali militant group, Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attacks.

 

Opolot did not say how many people were arrested after the attacks.

 

Al-Shabab has threatened further attacks on Uganda and Burundi, both of which have peacekeepers in Somalia, if the troops are not withdrawn.

 

Opolot said there is no suggestion an African Union summit to be hosted by Uganda later this month will be canceled following the bombings.
