We have learnt with sorrow that more than 10 people lost their lives and many others were injured as a result of an attack perpetrated with two bomb-laden vehicles today (2 January 2017) at noon time at the checkpoint of the Mogadishu Airport in Somalia.

We strongly condemn this heinous terrorist attack, which has been perpetrated at a time when significant steps are being taken towards establishing peace and stability in Somalia.
