Attack on Somali Federal Parliament condemned by UNListen /
A suicide attack on the Somali parliament building in Mogadishu has been condemned by the top UN envoy to the country.
The suicide-bombing on Saturday which reportedly killed four people has been blamed on the terrorist group Al-Shabaab.
The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Somalia, Nicholas Kay, said the group had bombed, assassinated and terrorised Somalis in Mogadishu since the start of the holy month of Ramadan, a month he said was dedicated to "prayers and peace."
He urged Somalis to work with the authorities to prevent further attacks and to bring to justice the people behind what he called "this murderous campaign."
He said the United Nations continues to work side alongside the Somali people to "build peace and a new, functioning state."
