The Ugandan capital Kampala has been hit by twin bomb attacks. The blasts occurred late on Sunday, killing and injuring a number of people as they watched the World Cup final on television.

Officials put the death toll at more than 20 but say it could rise further. One of the bombs went off at an Ethiopian restaurant, while the second hit another restaurant, at the Kyadondo Rugby Club.

Police believe the attacks could be the work of a Somali militia group, al-Shabab, which is linked to al-Qaeda.

If proved to be the case, this will be the first time the group has attacked targets outside of Somalia.
