Iran condemns explosions in Uganda

The Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesmen condemns the deadly explosions that rocked the Ugandan capital of Kampala, claiming the lives of 64 innocents and injuring scores of others.

“The Islamic Republic of Iran government and nation express their condolences and sympathies over this terrorist attack to the government and nation of Uganda,” Ramin Mehmanparast said on Monday.

Mehmanparast expressed hope for the continuance of peace and stability in east Africa so that the “Ugandan nation and other regional nations can live next to each other in peace.”

At least 64 people were killed and scores of others were injured when an explosion rocked an Ethiopian restaurant in the south of the capital and a second one simultaneously hit a rugby sports club east of Kampala on Sunday.

No person or group has so far claimed responsibility for the attack.
