    Uganda has long provided a sanctuary for Somali refugees fleeing unrest between al-Shabab fighters and the government in their home country.

    But following last week's deadly bomb attacks in Uganda, claimed by the al-Shabab, the migrant community is now apprehensive of a backlash.

    Al Jazeera's Andrew Simmons reports from the Ugandan capital Kampala on how Somalis are trying to pacify families bereaved by the attacks to reassure them of whose side they are on.
