KAMPALA, Uganda — Somalia's most dangerous al-Qaida-linked militant group claimed responsibility Monday for twin bombings in Uganda that killed 74 people watching the World Cup final on TV, saying the militants would carry out attacks "against out enemy" wherever they are.

Al-Shabab, whose ranks are swelled by militant veterans of the conflicts in Afghanistan and Iraq, has long threatened to attack outside of Somalia's borders, but the bombings late Sunday are the first time the group has done so."We will carry out attacks against our enemy wherever they are," Rage said. "No one will deter us from performing our Islamic duty."
