Police arrest 20 suspects in Uganda bombing

KAMPALA, Uganda Kale Kayihura says that all those arrested have connections with al-Shabab, and include Ugandans, Somalis, Ethiopians and Pakistani nationals. Al-Shabab, Somalia's most dangerous militant group, claimed responsibility for the attacks.

Kayihura on Saturday said that the 20 suspects are being held by Ugandan security as they investigate Sunday's bombing. He said that 37 bomb victims are still receiving treatment in hospitals.

Kenyan police said they arrested another suspect at a police checkpoint Wednesday near the Kenya-Somalia border.
