US Condemns Somalia Attack That Killed 231, Wounded 275

The United States is condemning “in the strongest terms” the deadliest single attack in Somalia’s history.

The State Department statement expresses condolences to victims and wishes a quick recovery for the injured.

Saturday’s truck bombing in Mogadishu killed at least 231 people. Another 275 are hurt.

The U.S. calls the attack “senseless and cowardly” and says it will stand with Somalia in its fight against extremism.
