“The attack on civilians in Mogadishu today is yet another act of terror targeting the Somali people by those wanting to undermine progress towards a stable and secure Somalia”, – says the statement of the European External Action Service.

“We pay respect to those who lost their lives and express our deepest condolences to their families and friends.

The blast took place just as Somalia recently concluded a political transition process and a new President was elected. We stand with President Farmajo and the new leadership to bring security and further build strong institutions. Forces undermining peace are not to be tolerated.

The EU will continue its relentless support to the people of Somalia in their efforts to recover from years of conflict and rebuild their country.”
