Two bomb blasts rocked the capital of Somalia, Mogadishu this weekend killing over 200 people. The people killed were students, shoppers, restaurant customers and waiters, kiosk workers, taxi and bus drivers.Men, women and children.
President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed declared three days of mourning and called for people to donate blood for the wounded.
I understand that in a war, there are casualties. But anyone killing civilians is to be condemned. I call on all armies, all governments and all groups to first of all, find alternatives to war and secondly quit with killing the people through the cowardly bomb or missile attacks.
My thoughts to all those impacted by this evil.
