MOSCOW, July 12 (Xinhua) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev on Monday condemned the bomb attacks in Uganda that have killed 64 people, and expressed condolences to Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni.

"The Russian Federation resolutely condemns terrorism in all its forms and calls for consolidated efforts by the international community in the fight against these inhumane crimes," Medvedev said in a telegram, according to the Kremlin press service.

At least 64 people were killed and 71 others injured in bomb attacks against football fans in the Ugandan capital Kampala late Sunday.

Two bomb blasts, one in an Ethiopian restaurant and another at the Kyadondo Rugby Club hosting a crowd of football fans watching the World Cup final between Spain and the Netherlands, occurred in the country's capital.

Police said the radical Islamic al-Shabaab militia in Somalia could be behind the bombings.
