Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Somalia, Augustine P. Mahiga

The United Nations has strongly condemned Monday's suicide car bomb attack in Mogadishu, in which several people were killed or wounded.

The Special Representative of the Secretary-General, Dr. Augustine P. Mahiga said "The attack apparently targeted a convoy carrying an international delegation. He said "These cowardly and senseless acts of violence will not undermine the remarkable progress Somalia has made in the past months", adding that "Attacks against civilians are never justifiable.

Special envoy Mahiga called "on all parties to renounce violence and contribute positively to peace and stability" in Somalia.

He said "The UN will continue to support the Government's efforts to improve security in the country and will not be deterred in supporting the peace building effort in Somalia".
