Canada’s Ambassador to Somalia, H. E. Ms. Sara Hradecky, today issued the following statement:

“Canada condemns the cowardly attack in Mogadishu on October 28, 2017, perpetrated a mere two weeks after the horrific attack in Somalia’s capital which caused an unprecedented number of victims.

“Canada grieves with all Somalis around the world and offers its deepest condolences to friends and families of the victims.

“Through such senseless acts, terrorists seek to instill fear and to divide Somalis. Yet such acts only unite us further and strengthen our resolve to combat hatred and violence, and support efforts to build an inclusive, secure and prosperous Somalia.”
