Somalia: Prime Minister Threatens Al-Shabaab

"The terrorists have once again shown that they are against all Somalis, by killing our innocent brothers and sisters. These cowardly, despicable actions are not a demonstration of the true Islamic faith.

"We are establishing the facts surrounding the attack and it is too early to provide any specific details. However, I share my condolences, those of the President and of all Members of Parliament with the families of those who were killed. We grieve the loss of our families and friends today and pray for the quick recovery of everyone injured.

"This attack will not deter the Federal Government of Somalia from continuing to hunt down and destroy the terrorists and build a peaceful Somalia that terrorists will never rule over."
