MOGADISHU, Somalia — The leader of the al-Qaida-linked Somali militant group that claimed responsibility for twin bombings in Uganda during the World Cup final has threatened further attacks in a new audio message.

The leader of al-Shabab — Sheikh Muktar Abu Zubayr — on Thursday also thanked the militants who carried out Sunday's twin bombings in Uganda that killed 76 people.

It was the first time al-Shabab had struck outside Somalia's borders.

In the audio message played on Mogadishu radio stations, Abu Zubayr told Uganda's president that more attacks would be carried out.

"I say to the Ugandan president what has happened in Kampala was only the beginning. We will keep revenging what your soldiers remorselessly did to our people. Your tanks destroyed the remains of our buildings in Mogadishu and we will also revenge that," Abu Zubayr said.
