Islamic State claimed responsibility for the deadly twin blasts in the Ugandan capital Kampala on Tuesday, November 16.

The group confirmed that the attack had been carried out by their suicide bombers, al-Amaq, a news agency affiliated to them reported late Tuesday.

The operation is the first time IS has claimed a suicide attack in Uganda since its activities were recorded in the country in October 2021.

IS identified the two attackers as Abu Sabr al-Ugandi (Arabic word meaning someone from Uganda). He detonated a bag of explosives near a checkpoint at the Central Police Station.

The second attack was carried out by two attackers on motorbikes – “Abu Shahid al-Ugandi and Abu Abdul-Rahman al-Ugandi” – who also detonated similar explosive bags targeting guards at the parliament building.
