One minute they were just enjoying the World Cup final, celebrating the final stages of this great global event. The next, they were caught up in a deadly massacre. Two co-ordinated bombs exploded at two locations in the Ugandan capital Kampala, targeting crowds watching the World Cup. More than 60 people were killed and many more injured. The blasts have drawn attention to the conflict in Somalia as fingers point to Islamist rebels in the war-torn country.Ugandan authorities believe Somalia's al-Shabab group is behind the attacks.

Joining the programme are Obonyo Olweny, the former spokesperson for the Lord's Resistance Army (LRA), Roger Middleton, a consultant researcher at Chatham House's Africa programme, and Afyare Elmi, an expert on Somalia and a professor of international politics at Qatar University.
