New York US (PANA) - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has expressed outrage at a terrorist attack in Mogadishu on Wednesday, which damaged a convoy of UN vehicles and killed and injured several Somali bystanders and security personnel.

"There can be no justification for terrorism or such attacks," Ban said in a brief statement issued in New York.

The UN chief also reaffirmed the UN’s strong commitment to working with the people and Government of Somalia to help rebuild peace and prosperity for all Somalis.

According to the UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), no staff were injured in the attack,
which took place at approximately 9:40 am. Investigations into the bombing continue.
