Islamists suspected of killing more than 64 World Cup fans in Uganda

Ugandan police suspect al-Shabab


 

Three bombs exploded around 10:30 p.m. in crowds of football fans who had gathered to watch the World Cup final in Kampala, Uganda yesterday. At least 64 people were killed in at least three separate bombings, including one at an Ethiopian restaurant and one at a rugby field with the game on a large outdoor screen. Ugandan officials suspect al-Shabab, a militant Islamic group from nearby Somalia. Al-Shabab, which wrestles with a weak government for control of neighbouring Somali, has outlawed music, dancing and sports in the areas it controls. The group recently raided homes in Mogadishu to arrest football fans, killing at least two people in the process. Sheik Yusuf Sheik Issa of al-Shabbab did not take responsibility for the attacks, but praised them. “Uganda is one of our enemies,” he told the Associated Press. “Whatever makes them cry, makes us happy. May Allah’s anger be upon those who are against us.”

  1. The 'religion of peace' strikes again. The Koran demands violence from its followers.

  2. The West needs to start eliminating men like Sheik USELESSa.

  3. “Whatever makes them cry, makes us happy. May Allah's anger be upon those who are against us.”
    – Sheik Yusuf Sheik Issa of al-Shabbab

    Ah! such a peaceful soul!! makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!! ain't there mullahs such nice guys!! eh!? Eh!? :@

  4. I feel bad for these people. They were just watching a soccer game.

  5. Islamists have infiltrated the NDP. It's no accident that Libby Davies, goes ballistic every time Israel defends herself. It's not a coincidence that Toronto Star columnist, Linda mcQuaiq takes Israel to task on every banana peel it slips on. It's not a once in lifetime thing, that Toronto Star columnist Thomas Walkom took great pains to argue in favor of the Toronto 18. And Michele Shephard, paints Omar Khadar as a poor sheep being sacrificed by the mean Americans. And now the NDP are attempting to exploit police activity during the G20 summit,another layton conspiracy. One must wonder, who's side the NDP is on.
