|Somalia: A time for caution|
|By Afyare Abdi Elmi|
The Somali al-Shabab group has claimed responsibility for two explosions that rocked the Ugandan capital Kampala, targeting innocent people watching the World Cup final.
The attacks, which left at least 74 people dead, were the first by al-Shabab outside of Somalia.
Uganda and Burundi have, in the past, dismissed threats by the group, which vowed to avenge what it called "massacres" committed by Ugandan and Burundian troops as part of the 6,000-strong African Union force propping up the weak Somali government.
