Museveni says organizers of Kampala bomb attacks arrested

Kampala- Uganda (PANA) -- Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni has called on African Union (AU) member states to reject the arrogance of terrorism supporters and mo v e to defeat them.
Addressing the opening of the 15th Session of the AU Assembly of Heads of State and Government here Sunday, Museveni said he was glad that the whole of Africa h a d condemned the 11 July, 2010, terrorist attacks on restaurants and recreational places in Kampala which claimed 76 lives of young people.
He said the attacks, for which Somali rebel group al Shabab claimed responsibili ty, were an act of cowardice.
The same group this week perpetrated another attack against Ugandan peacekeepers in war-ravaged Somalia, but according to the president, the attackers got the p u nishment they deserved from forces of the Transitional Federal Government of Som a lia and Uganda.
Museveni informed the gathering of African leaders that many organizers of the K ampala bomb attacks had been arrested and "their interrogation is yielding very g ood information".
Alluding to the attackers' origin, Museveni stated: "Let them go back to Asia wh ere I know they come from.
I reject this new form of colonialism through terrori s m.
