United States Condemns Terrorist Attack on Ministries of Interior and Internal Security

The United States condemns the July 7 terrorist attack on the Ministries of Interior and Internal Security in Mogadishu and sends condolences to the families and friends of those killed and wounded. We commend the response of the Somali security forces that quickly ended the attack and restored order.

Al-Shabaab’s attacks on Somali civilians striving to improve governance and security for all Somalis are immoral and unacceptable.  The United States remains a committed partner with the Federal Government of Somalia and its allies in the fight against terrorism.
