Kampala: Ugandan officials say 32 people have
now been charged in connection with the July bomb blasts that
killed 76 people.

State attorney Joan Kagezi said today the suspects
include nationals of Kenya, Somalia and Uganda.
Kagezi says four of the suspects have confessed. She says
the suspects will have a hearing Sept 2 but did not say when
their trials might begin.

Police also say they are still investigating and there
may be more arrests.
The al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group al-Shabab
claimed responsibility for the July 11 bombings in two
locations in Uganda`s capital during the World Cup final.

Al-Shabab has vowed to attack Uganda and Burundi for
sending troops to Somalia as part of an African Union
peacekeeping mission.
