U.S. Strongly Condemns Attack on Lido Beach Restaurant

The United States strongly condemns the senseless and brutal attack on the Banadir Beach Restaurant at Lido Beach in Mogadishu. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the families and friends of those killed and express hope for a speedy and complete recovery of the wounded.

This attack once again exemplifies that innocent Somalis bear the brunt of al-Shabaab’s vicious attacks, but the terrorists will not succeed. The United States will continue to work with the people of Somalia, the Federal Government, and the Somali National Army to help them restore peace and security throughout the country.
