Uganda charges three with Kampala bombings

Friday, July 30, 2010

 KAMPALA (Reuters) - Three Kenyans have been charged with the bomb attacks that killed 79 soccer fans watching the World Cup final on television in the Ugandan capital, Kampala.



Hussein Hassan, 27, Mohammed Adan Abdow, 25, and Idris Magondu, 42, were taken to a magistrate's court and charged with murder, terrorism and attempted murder.

They were not required to answer the charges because the cases will be heard by the high court. The magistrate remanded the men until August 27.

Al Shabaab, a Somali rebel group which professes loyalty to al Qaeda, claimed responsibility for the attacks, which heightened concerns about Shabaab's ability to carry out more attacks in the region and beyond.


African Union leaders pledged to add 4,000 soldiers to the AU's peacekeeping force in Somalia to tackle the threat from al Shabaab.
