Kampala bombings leave 64 people dead

Two bombs in the Ugandan capital, Kampala have killed at least 64 people and injured another 70.

The blasts hit a rugby club and an Ethiopian restaurant where football fans had gathered to watch the World Cup final.

Police suggest that Somali militants could be to blame.

They have previously threatened to target Kampala because of the presence of Ugandan peacekeepers in Mogadishu to protect the fragile government against Islamic insurgents.

The BBC's Kampala correspondent Joshua Mmali spoke to Network Africa's Audrey Brown.
