Foreign Secretary condemns attacks in Somalia

Foreign Secretary William Hague condemns today’s attacks in Mogadishu and praises Somali emergency response.

This was published under the 2010 to 2015 Conservative and Liberal Democrat coalition government


The Foreign Secretary said:

I condemn today’s attack on Villa Somalia, in Mogadishu, in the strongest possible terms. My thoughts are with the families of the victims and those injured. I’d also like to pay tribute to the Somali security services, some of whom were killed in the attack, who deserve credit for repelling the attack. Attacks like these only strengthen our resolve to stand shoulder to shoulder with the Somali people in their efforts to build a more stable future.
