Statement by NSC Spokesperson Ned Price on the Terrorist Attack in Mogadishu, Somalia

The United States condemns in the strongest terms the terrorist attack at the Mogadishu International Airport in Somalia on July 26. Our condolences go out to the United Nations personnel, African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) soldiers, Somali citizens, and friends and families of all those who were killed and injured in this cowardly attack. 

The United States stands squarely with Somalia and our partners in the fight against despicable acts of terrorism that seek to destabilize Somalia. We remain committed to helping Somalia progress along a path towards peace and prosperity and the defeat of terrorist groups, including al-Shabaab.
