Mogadishu, May 03, 2014 — The Prime Minister of the Federal Government of Somalia H.E. Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed Mohamed expressed his grief about today's explosion in Mogadishu that claimed the lives of innocent civilians. The explosion also killed the former Secretary General of Administration of Banadir Regional Administration Abdikafi Hilowle Osman and some of his personal guards. The prime minister described the incident as an act of terrorism by insurgents who have no place in Islamic tradition.

Speaking about the explosion, the Prime Minister said:

"I am sending my condolences to the families of all those who were killed in today’s attack in Mogadishu that targeted innocent Somali civilians. I am also sending my condolences to the families of Mr. Abdikafi Hilowle Osman and some of his personal guards who were also killed in today’s attack. The deceased was someone I knew personally who worked tirelessly for the people of Somalia and the Somali Government.

"We lost individuals who were important to our society. They were taking part in development and our efforts to move the country beyond this difficult period. These types of attacks will strengthen our resolve to eradicate terrorists who are causing problems for the people and the country of Somalia.

"Shedding the blood of innocent civilians has no basis in our Islamic religion or in Somali culture. By the grace of God, we will prevail against those who are distorting our righteous faith and killing our people.”

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Abdiweli spoke about an attempted assassination in which a Member of Parliament was targeted. He described as heroic the action of a Somali civilian who thwarted the aim of the terrorists by alerting the Member of Parliament that his car had been rigged with explosives. This act saved the lives of the Member of Parliament and two of his colleagues who were with him.

"I am praising the brave action the civilian took to alert the Member of Parliament. This act shows that our people are ready to take part in ensuring security,” said the Prime Minister.
