74 Dead in Uganda Bombings

The leader of an Islamist militant movement in Somalia said in a Web site posting that Uganda would be targeted for retribution over the massacres perpetrated against Somalis, which many believe to be a claim of responsibility for the bombings that killed at least 74 people Sunday.

From CNN:

“My message to the Ugandan and Burundian nations is that you will be the target for our retribution to the massacres perpetrated against the Somali men, women and children in Mogadishu by your forces,” said an Arabic statement from Sheikh Abu Al Zubeir, identified as “the Emir of Al-Shabaab in Somalia.” The statement was posted on an al-Qaeda affiliated website which previously has carried statements and videos from Al-Shabaab.

The website set up a page Monday to “receive congratulations” on Al-Shabaab’s behalf for the “blessed operations” in Uganda.

The three explosions ripped through two venues where crowds were watching the World Cup final match on Sunday.
