UN: UN Security Council condemns Al-Shabaab attack on Mogadishu hotel

New York, US (PANA) - The UN Security Council on Thursday strongly condemned the deadly attack on 1 June perpetrated by Al-Shabaab militants on the Ambassador Hotel, Mogadishu, Somalia's capital city.

In a UN statement obtained by PANA in New York, the Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constituted one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, stressing those responsible for these killings should be held accountable.

The Council also stressed the need to take measures to prevent and suppress the financing of Al-Shabaab, and any other terrorist group in Somalia.

It reiterated its determination to support the peace and reconciliation process in Somalia, underlining that neither this nor any other terrorist attack would weaken that determination.

A bomb and gun attack by Al-Shabaab militants on the hotel killed at least 16 people and wounded 55.
