76 World Cup Fans Dead in Uganda

News reports have released that: “The Somali Islamic militant group al-Shabab says they were behind the bombings at two sites in Uganda’s capital, Kampala.  The al-Qaida-linked group said the attacks were revenge for Uganda’s participation in an African Union peacekeeping force that supports the Somali government, and that more attacks would follow.
Most of those who died Sunday were watching the World Cup on big-screen televisions at a rugby club in Kampala.  The others died in a blast that targeted an Ethiopian restaurant. Police said at least 60 of the victims in Sunday’s bombings were Ugandans.  The others included people from Ethiopia or Eritrea, one American aid worker, an Irish woman and one Asian.”

How tragic. Terrorists continue to murder innocent people to demonstrate their extreme beliefs, when will this end? Follow more on this story at: http://www1.voanews.com/english/news/
