Bombers targeted World Cup fans in Kampala, Uganda, killing at least 64 and injuring one American. Fans were gathered to watch the final match when the attack took place in the normally calm capital. Uganda officials suspect al-Shabab, a Somalia-based militant Islamic group that has previously admitted links to al-Qaida. Reporter for the The New York Times, Josh Kron reports from Kampala.
