Kampala, Uganda - The death toll has risen to at least 64 in the bombings that occurred on Sunday, believed to be a planned attack on large gatherings of World Cup soccer fans watching the televised finals on outdoor screens. 40 bodies were recovered in Kyadondo Rugby Club. The club was filled with soccer fans watching the World Cup finals between Spain and Netherlands. 70 were reportedly wounded and brought to the hospital.

In a report by Reuters, Sheik Yusuf Sheik Issa, a Shabab commander in Somalia said, “Uganda is a major infidel country supporting the so-called government of Somalia.” He continued, “We know Uganda is against Islam and so we are very happy at what has happened in Kampala. That is the best news we ever heard.”

The office of the president of Uganda announced today that: “The public is reminded to be vigilant in regards to security and report any suspicious activities to the police,” President Yoweri Museveni’s media center said. “Investigations are ongoing and further information shall be availed later today.”
