Mogadishu: UAE aid staff escape car bomb attack

Three Somalis were killed and scores of people were injured when a group of terrorists launched a car bomb on a UAE relief convoy in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, a WAM report quoted the UAE Ambassador to Somalia Mohammad Ahmad Al Hammadi as saying.

He said the UAE aid workers in the convoy were not injured. The ambassador said the UAE embassy is in contact with the authorities to fly the wounded to the UAE for treatment.
Dr Anwar Mohammad Gargash, Minister of State for Foreign Affairs, strongly condemned the attack and expressed his deep sorrow at the Somali casualties. He offered condolences to their families and wished speedy recovery to the wounded.
“We are following the situation and investigations related to the incident closely,” Gargash added.
He stressed that this terrorist act will not deter the UAE from its commitment to support Somalia and its people in addressing the threat of terrorism. He said that the UAE will continue to work hard to support the security, stability and development in Somalia.
