Turkey condemns bomb blast in Somali capital

.

Turkey on Friday “strongly” condemned the “heinous terrorist attack” Thursday in Somalia’s capital Mogadishu.
At least 17 people were killed and more than six wounded when a car bomb exploded on the busiest street in Mogadishu.
Somali-based al-Qaeda-affiliated  group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack on the Internet.




In a written statement, the Turkish Foreign Ministry conveyed condolences “to the families who lost their loved ones and wished a speedy recovery to the wounded.”
“Turkey will maintain its strong solidarity with the government and the brotherly people of Somalia in the fight against terrorism,” the statement added.
Last October, at least 600 people died in a double car bombing in Mogadishu, the deadliest attack in modern Somali history.
