The Somali Government strongly condemns a suicide bombing that killed 15 people and injured at least 20 more at a ministerial compound in the heart of the capital.
The casualties are mostly students and parents who were waiting for results of scholarships from the Ministry of Higher Education.
No senior Government official was hurt in the attack.
The attack shows that the danger from terrorists is not yet over and that there are obviously still people, who want to derail the advances that the Somali people have made towards peace.
The Government conveys its heartfelt condolences to the bereaved families and hopes that the injured make a fast recovery.
We will provide updates as they become available.
