"Our hearts and prayers are with the innocent victims and their families. We share their grief and pain. We know from personal experience of the suffering caused by these fatally misguided killers.We stand resolute with our Kenyan friends and partners in this ongoing fight against our common enemies.

The first thing to say is that the attackers in Westgate are not Muslims. They are a complete dishonor to the faith.

Tragically they have been brainwashed into destroying innocent lives, theirs included. What they regard as a glory to the faith only damages it.

I draw attention to the recent fatwa issued by 160 of Somalia’s most distinguished religious scholars denouncing Al Shabaab categorically and declaring it was a religious duty not to protect them but to turn them into the authorities.

Be under no illusion: these men and women are without religion.

– Abdi Farah Shirdon, Prime Minister of Somalia
