The Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General (SRSG) for Somalia, Nicholas Kay, has strongly condemned a violent attack on Puntland government forces today.

At approximately 11 am this morning, a suicide car bomber targeted Puntland forces in the port city of Bossaso; reports suggest that several people were killed and dozens injured in the attack.

Puntland is in the midst of an electoral process that should lead to a new parliament this year and presidential elections in January 2014.

“Such cowardly acts will serve no purpose,” SRSG Kay said. “We stand by the people of Puntland as they strive for stability and prosperity.”

He expressed his sincere condolences to those who lost loved ones and wished all those injured in the attack a quick recovery.
