India condemns al Shabaab terror attack at Mogadishu International Airport

The Indian government has strongly condemned al Shabaab’ terror attack at the Mogadishu International Airport area, which killed six people including a Somali national and five foreigners.

The government said that the increasing frequency of terrorist incidents conducted by Al Shabaab is a matter of serious concern.

Police spokesman Major Abdifatah Aden Hassan has confirmed that two gunmen were carried out the attack but they were shot dead by the security forces.

“We reiterate our full support to the operations conducted by the Somali forces and the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) against Al Shabaab and that the international community must continue to stand behind Somalia in its fight against terrorism”.

India pledged to continue to support Somalia and its people in their collective desire for a stable, secure and peaceful future.

The airport hosts the headquarters of the AMISOM and most of the foreign diplomats in Mogadishu.
