1 min read

The United Nations Security Council has strongly condemned the terrorist attack in Beledweyne and the attack on Mogadishu’s Aden Adde International Airport.

Council members expressed outrage at the actions, which they described as “barbaric” by anti-peace groups.

The United Nations Security Council has called for the perpetrators of the attacks to be brought to justice.

“Members of the Security Council underscore the need to hold perpetrators, organizers, and financiers of these terrorist acts accountable and bring them to justice,” the Security Council said in a statement.

The Security Council also urged all State Governments, ‘in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions’, to work actively with the Federal Government of Somalia and all other relevant institutions.

The attack at Aden Adde International Airport in Mogadishu killed six foreigners, including an AMISOM soldier and trainers.

Suicide bombings in Beledweyne on the same night killed more than 50 people, including former lawmakers, and injured 108 others.
