Bombs strike World Cup watchers in Uganda, American from Calif. group among 64 killed

KAMPALA, Uganda (AP) - Police in Uganda believe an al-Qaida-linked group is behind a double blast in the African nation, killing at least 64 people, including an American from a California-based aid group.

The blasts ripped through a rugby club and a restaurant as crowds watched the World Cup soccer final in the capital, Kampala. Several other Americans were among the wounded.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton is "strongly condemning" the explosions.

Clinton says the United States will work with the Ugandan government "to bring the perpetrators of this crime to justice."
