United States Condemns Mogadishu Terrorist Attacks
The United States condemns in the strongest terms the October 14 terrorist attacks that killed and injured scores of innocent Somalis in Mogadishu. We extend our deepest condolences to the families of those who perished and wish a speedy recovery to individuals injured in the blasts.
The United States lauds the heroic response of the Somali security forces and first responders and Somali citizens who rushed to the aid of their brothers and sisters.
Such cowardly attacks reinvigorate the commitment of the United States to assist our Somali and African Union partners to combat the scourge of terrorism to promote stability and prosperity for the Somali people and their regional neighbors.
