Uganda police say Pakistanis among blast suspects

For as much as Pakistan says they are against Terrorism , their fingerprints sure are everywhere !

Oh well I'm sure Hillary will give them some more money for all their efforts !

(Reuters) - Twin bomb attacks in Uganda that killed 73 people last week were carried out by suicide bombers and Pakistanis were among 20 suspects arrested, the head of police said on Sunday.

Somali al Shabaab insurgents linked to al Qaeda have said they carried out the attacks on a restaurant and a rugby club in the capital Kampala while fans watched the World Cup final last Sunday, but said no suicide bombers were involved.

"These attacks were carried out by suicide bombers. The evidence is overwhelming ... two heads have not been claimed, neither have they been identified. It can't be a coincidence," Inspector General of Police Kale Kayihura told a news conference.

Al Shabaab said it was avenging the killing of civilians by African Union peacekeepers. Ugandan forces form the backbone of the 6,100-strong contingent in Somalia...

Last week police said they had arrested six of the more than 20 Somalis and Ugandans suspected of planning the bombings.

Kayihura said on Sunday the number of arrests had risen.

"We have arrested more than 20 people arrested, some of whom are foreigners, including Pakistanis," he said, without elaborating.
