The President of the Government of Puntland State of Somalia, His Excellency Abdirahman Mohamed Mohamud (Farole), on behalf of the people and Government of Puntland, strongly condemns the heinous act of terrorism, which the Al Shabaab terrorist group carried out today in Mogadishu.
Using their barbaric methods of massive truck-loaded explosives and suicide bombings, the terrorists murdered and injured hundreds of innocent civilians. The victims included many young students and their parents awaiting exam results for scholarships to study in Turkey.
The President, speaking live on the BBC Somali Service this afternoon, sent sincere condolences to the families of the victims, the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) of Somalia, and to the Somali people everywhere.
President Farole sent a defiant message to the terrorists: “This heinous and subhuman terrorist attack will unite our people and the whole civilized world to fight and cleanse these criminals from our world.” The President called upon the people Puntland to be vigilant of terrorist attacks.
