US teen at SAfrica hospital after Uganda bombing

A hospital official says an American teenager wounded in the Uganda terror bombings is in stable condition after being flown to South Africa.
Hospital spokeswoman Leanne Foul said Thursday that 16-year-old Emily Kerstetter's grandmother also was being treated at Johannesburg's Milpark Hospital.
Emily, who is from Ellicott City, Maryland, and her grandmother were wounded in an explosion in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, where two bombs went off Sunday night. Seventy-six people were killed.
Al-Shabab, an al-Qaida-linked militant group in Somalia, claimed responsibility for the attacks.
Emily and her grandmother were in Uganda with a church group at the time of the bombings.
