Since I was in Kampala, I thought it would be fun to watch the final World Cup match with a few hundred Dutch (along with many other foreigners and Ugandans) at Iguana, a local restaurant. All in all, it was a good time… until we had to be evacuated. 3 bombs went off a few kilometers away at a couple other local restaurants where many foreigners and Ugandans were also watching the game. (For those of you who have been here, the bombings occurred just across from Game & Shoprite at the Kyadondo Rugby Club and on Tank Hill in Kabalagala at the Ethiopian Village Restaurant – places foreigners, including us, frequent.) Apparently, the attack was coordinated by suicide bombers from the Somalian al-Shabab terrorist group who are upset with Uganda for sending more peace-keeping troops into Somalia. The seriousness and danger really didn’t hit me until the next morning when I joined some reporter friends and went to the sites. We praise God that the restaurant we were at was not bombed; however, we ask that you pray for the many injured and the friends and family of the 74+ killed.You can see pictures he took the morning after at http://sliedrechts.spaces.live.com/blog/cns!94B85C53B78F4A33!8610.entry A few include the Ugandan president speaking outside one of the bomb sites.
