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