KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) - A spokesman for the Somali militant group Al-Shabab is claiming responsibility for the twin bombings in Uganda that killed 74 people.

Sheik Ali Mohamud Rage, a militant spokesman in Nogadishu, claimed responsibility.

Ugandan officials had suspected the Somali group of being behind the late Sunday attacks, which took place on two sites in the Ugandan capital as people watched the World Cup Final.

The attacks are the first time that the Al-Qaida-linked Al-Shabab has attacked sites outside Somalia.
