Somalia – Attack in Mogadishu (3 July 2014)

France condemns the attack in Mogadishu on 3 July which killed several people, including Mr Ahmed Mohamud Hayd, a member of Somalia’s Federal Parliament.

We express our condolences to the Somali victims’ loved-ones and assure the Somali authorities and people of our solidarity. There can be no impunity for these heinous acts, the perpetrators of which will have to be brought to justice.

We reiterate France’s unfailing support for the Somali people and authorities’ efforts to rebuild their country. We particularly welcome the agreement of 23 June 2014 on an interim administration for the south-west [regions], which is a milestone in the process to build the Federal State of Somalia.
