gypt has condemned a treacherous suicide attack that took place in the Somali capital of Mogadishu on Tuesday that resulted in several casualties. 
In a statement released on Wednesday, the Egyptian government and people expressed their sincere condolences to the government and people of the Federal Republic of Somalia and to the families of the victims, wishing a speedy recovery for all the injured.
The statement stressed the country’s support for brotherly Somalia in confronting all forms of violence, extremism, and terrorism.
Four people were killed, and 10 others injured — including civilians and military personnel — on Tuesday in a suicide bombing that targeted a popular restaurant in Mogadishu.
The blast took place at a restaurant frequented by government soldiers opposite a military training centre in the Woodgar district, west of Mogadishu.
No one immediately claimed responsibility for the attack, but fingers are pointed at the terrorist group known as ‘Al-Shabaab’, which often uses the same tactic to carry out its attacks.
This is the third bombing in a week targeting Mogadishu.
Last week, the media reported that a large explosion on a road leading to the Somali capital’s airport killed eight people and damaged four cars.
Attacks on civilians and military personnel in Somalia by the terrorist organisation are frequent amid local efforts to curb the its activity
