Security Council condemns Al-Shabaab terrorist attack in Somalia

Listen /

Security Council Chamber

The members of the Security Council have condemned in the strongest terms a terrorist attack in Somalia for which Al-Shabaab has claimed responsibility.

In a statement issued late on Thursday, the Council members said they were "appalled" by the attack and expressed their deep concern at this and other recent attacks perpetrated by the same group in Somalia.

On 17 February, another attack by Al-Shabaab against the office of the President of the Federal Government of Somalia caused numerous deaths and injuries.

The members of the Security Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice.

They urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Somali authorities in this regard.

The Council members also underscored their determination to continue to support all international efforts aimed at ending the threat posed by Al- Shabaab.
