UN condemns attacks targeting UN and government in Somalia
The UN Security Council condemned "in the strongest terms" on Thursday the wave of bomb attacks in Somalia that killed at least 26 people, including two staff members of the UN Development Programme, dpa reported.
The two staff members were Somalis who worked for the UN for years. The attacks took place Wednesday in the breakaway Somaliland and Puntland regions.
The UNDP and a Somali government office were hit by the bombs. UNDP said that six other staff were wounded, and two of them were flown to Djibouti and the rest to Nairobi for immediate medical treatment.
The council called for bringing all attackers before justice and offered condolences to families of the victims.
