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.

Is Uganda paying a price for contributing to the peacekeeping force there? And is the Somalia conflict spilling over to other countries?

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.

This episode of Inside Story airs from Monday, July 12, at 1730GMT, with repeats at 2230GMT, and the next day at 0430GMT and 1030GMT.
