Somalia - Djibouti – Attack against an AMISOM base (October 25, 2016)


France condemns the attack perpetrated by the terrorist group Al-Shabab on October 25 against a base belonging to the African Union Mission to Somalia (AMISOM) in the town of Beledweyne, which left several Djibouti soldiers dead.

We extend our condolences to the victims’ families and the Djibouti authorities. The perpetrators of this attack must be brought to justice.

We pay tribute to the efforts of AMISOM and the Djibouti contingent to restore peace and security in Somalia. Together with our partners, we stand alongside the Somali government and the African Union in the fight against terrorism.
