Two bombings at a restaurant and a rugby club in the Ugandan capital of Kampala left at least 33 people dead late Sunday, local media reported.
The Kyadondo Rugby Club was hosting a crowd of football fans who had gathered to watch the World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands when the bomb went off there, the Sunday Vision newspaper reported online.
Blood, clothing and shoes littered the ground among destroyed furniture while security and medical personnel attended to the injured. The attack occurred shortly after 11 pm local time.
The motive of the attacks remained unclear, but Somali extremists had threatened attacks in Kampala because Ugandan troops are in Mogadishu.
