PARIS, July 18 (Xinhua) -- The Lyons-based International Criminal Police Organization (Interpol) on Sunday released computer-generated photos of two suicide bombers in July 11 terrorist attacks in Uganda, hoping for their identification.

Interpol said in a statement that, at the request from the Ugandan police, it had generated the photos according to the corpses of two suspects found at the bombing sites. Interpol has already asked its 188 members to help identify the two men.

Interpol has also sent an emergency team to Uganda to help the police investigate the bombings.

On July 11, an Ethiopian restaurant and a rugby club outside the Ugandan capital of Kampala were attacked by suicide bombers. The bombings killed as many as 74 people as soccer fans were watching the World Cup final at the two venues.

The attacks were later claimed by al Qaida-inspired Shebab rebels in Somalia, who said their aim was to force the Ugandan government to withdraw the more than 2,000 peacekeepers from the Somali capital of Mogadishu. It was rejected by the Ugandan government.
