Attack on Turkish embassy in Somalia protested
Attacks on a Turkish Embassy annex in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, which killed one Turkish security guard leaving several others injured last Saturday, were protested by hundreds of people in Somalia. Waving Turkish flags, hundreds of Somali people chanted slogans to support the Turkish government and people. Speaking to a reporter, a protestor said that this was an unexpected situation for them, and that they were quite sorry for what has happened. "Turkey doesn't deserve such an attack," said the protestor. For his part, Mogadishu Mayor Mohammed Nur said in a press conference that he condemned the attack, adding that Turkish people have supported and assisted people of Somalia in the most difficult times. "While everybody was keeping a distance, Prime Minister Recep Tayyip Erdogan visited us. At times when we were in need of food and medicine, Turkey has sent aid to us. In order to prevent similar attacks, necessary measures are taken," Nur said.
