KAMPALA, July 14 (Xinhua) -- Kenya has handed over a suspected member of Somalia's hard-lined faction al Shabab to Uganda after three bomb blasts killed 73 people in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, Ugandan official said here on Wednesday.

Fred Opolot, Ugandan government spokesman, said the suspect named Ali Isa Ssenkumba was arrested by Kenyan police in Nairobi last week and handed over to Uganda on Tuesday.

He said Ugandan investigators are now looking into possible connections between Ssenkumba and the three bomb blasts at two sites in the Kampala suburb, for which al Shabab claimed responsibility.

The Ugandan government on Wednesday revised the death toll of Sunday's attack from 76 to 73.
