Suicide Bombers Strike Uganda
On Sunday, two Somali suicide bombers self detonated at World Cup gatherings in Kampala. The Al-Qaida linked group Al-Shabab (or Al-Shabaab) claimed responsibilty for the attack:
According to today's news, an unexploded suicide vest was found and 4 arrests have been made:
I'm sure the Ugandan authorities will find another vest, or the safe house/bomb factory. Al-Qaida doctrine calls for multiple attacks, usually based on multiples of 4, in order to ensure success. They'll count on someone not leaving the safe house, one malfunction and one attack being thwarted at the scene. This gives the terrorists a chance of at least one successful, mass-casualty inducing, attack.
