Somalia – Attack on army chief (9 April 2017)


France condemns yesterday’s attack in Mogadishu against the new Somali army chief. He survived the attack.

We offer our condolences to the families of the victims of this attack.

France is concerned about the escalation of violence that has been seen since President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed reaffirmed his determination – as soon as he came to power - to step up the country’s security. Together with our partners, we assure Somalia of our solidarity in the fight against terrorism.
