The United States condemns today’s terrorist attack that has reportedly killed at least ten innocent Somali civilians in downtown Mogadishu. Our thoughts and prayers are with the victims, survivors and their families.
There can be no excuse for murder. We stand firmly with the citizens and Government of Somalia who have turned their back on al Shabaab’s senseless violence and will continue to support the Somali people as they work to bring stability, peace and prosperity back to their country.
