CAIRO: Egypt has condemned Saturday’s attack by Al-Shabab on vehicles in the central Somali region of Hiran, killing 19 and wounding others.


Egypt’s Foreign Ministry said the country’s government and people offer their condolences to the victims’ families and wish the injured a speedy recovery.

Egypt affirms “its full solidarity with Somalia and its strong rejection of all forms of violence, extremism, and terrorism,” the ministry added.

The Al-Qaeda-linked group said it had targeted fighters from a local clan who had helped government forces.

The attack comes two weeks after an attack by Al-Shabab on a hotel in the capital Mogadishu that lasted for 30 hours, killing 21 people and wounding 117.
