African Union condemns twin bomb blasts in Ugandan capital

African Union (AU) on Tuesday condemned the twin bomb blasts in Kampala, the Ugandan capital, which left six people dead including three suicide bombers.

The continental body in a tweet said it stands in solidarity with the people of Uganda following the terrorist attacks on a police checkpoint and on a street with government offices Tuesday.

“I condemn in the strongest terms. Our sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wishes for a full recovery to the injured,” said Moussa Faki Mahamat, chairperson of the AU Commission, in the tweet.

Police said 33 other people were injured in the attacks. The attacks, according to police, bear the hallmarks of the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), an affiliate of the Islamic State in central Africa.
