9 March: Mogadishu, Somalia

An attack consisting of six mortar rounds that landed in the perimeter of the Aden Adde International Airport in Mogadishu wounded at least two. Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility. UN Secretary-General for Somalia, James Swan, quickly condemned the attack, saying in a statement, “I condemn this Al-Shabaab mortar attack on the airport facility in Mogadishu. We wish a speedy recovery to those injured elsewhere at the airport. Despite such acts of violence, Somalia’s international partners remain committed to stand by the people of Somalia, and continue supporting the advancement of the country.”
