The Islamic State group claims responsibility for a twin suicide bombing in Kampala in which three people were killed. Ugandan police had blamed a "domestic terror group" linked to the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF). Also, the UN says at least 1,000 people have been arrested in Ethiopia since the state of emergency. Mostly people of Tigrayan origin have been detained, mainly in Addis Ababa and the northern cities of Gondar and Bahir Dar.
At least three people have been killed and 33 others injured in twin suicide bombings in Uganda’s capital Kampala, police said, the latest in a string of attacks over the past month.
At least 74 people were killed and dozens more were injured on Sunday after bombs ripped through two restaurants in the Ugandan capital of Kampala. Police said the bombs were targeting football fans who had gathered to watch the World Cup final.
