The United States extends condolences to the family of journalist Abdullahi Osman Moalim, who succumbed to injuries sustained from an al–Shabaab terrorist attack on September 10 in Beledweyne. Abdullahi worked for Jubbaland TV and Radio Codka Hiiraan. The United States condemns al–Shabaab and its indiscriminate attacks on the Somali people. We salute and encourage Somali journalists to continue their work despite the daily struggles and risks, in defense of the inalienable right of freedom of expression on behalf of the Somali people.
