ANKARA (AA) – Turkey’s Foreign Ministry condemned a suicide bombing Wednesday in the office of the mayor of Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu.

“We are deeply saddened that Mr. Abdirahman Omar Osman -- the governor of Benadir (Region) and mayor of Mogadishu -- was wounded while several people lost their lives as a result of a terror attack perpetrated today in his office,” the ministry said in a statement.

It said Turkey strongly condemns the heinous attack and conveys well-wishes and condolences to the people and government of Somalia.

“We wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and wish a speedy recovery to Mr. Abdirahman Omar Osman,” it added.

A female suicide bomber blew herself up in the mayor’s office, killing two officials and badly wounding Osman.

The attack came an hour after the mayor met with senior officials from the Somalia-based UN office, including the UN envoy to Somalia, according to Mogadishu administration sources.

No group has claimed responsibility so far, but officials have blamed the al-Qaeda affiliated group al-Shabaab for the attack.
