    More than 30 African heads of state have gathered for an African Union summit in Kampala, the Ugandan capital.

    The leaders urged for a united front against al-Shabaab, a Somali-based group responsible for a recent bombing in Kampala that claimed 70 civilian lives.

    But some warn that upping the fight with al-Shabaab could play into the groups' hands.

    Andrew Simmons reports from Kampala.
