74 dead in Uganda bomb blasts

Bomb explosions that tore through two bars in the Ugandan capital at the weekend left at least 74 people dead and wounded 65 others, a national police spokeswoman said Monday.
Three separate blasts went out in the Ugandan capital – Kampala as residents watched the 2010 World Cup final on giant screens.

Police said among the dead were foreigners. One blast went off at the Ethiopian Village Restaurant in Kabalagala, a Kampala suburb, while Daily Monitor reporters counted about 40 bodies at Kyaddondo rugby grounds where a huge crowd was watching the Spain Vs Netherlands Word Cup final.
Another blast was reported to have gone off in Ntinda, another Kampala suburb, as more than 100 were reported admitted in hospitals and clinics in the capital including the national referral hospital – Mulago. ref: AFP/Nation
