Press release

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs expresses its strong condemnation and denunciation of the double bombing on the headquarters of the Somali Ministry of Education and Higher Education, in the capital, Mogadishu, which claimed the lives of a number of citizens and others injured.

We express our sympathy to the Somali people and the families of the victims, and emphasize the position of Iraq which rejects terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and its standing with the international community in confronting terrorism, as Iraq had faced al-Takfir and extremism in all its forms.  We also confirm the need to confront these extremist groups ideologically.
