MOGADISHU, Somalia – Somalia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs, Ahmed Isse Awad has strongly condemned an assassination attempt to kill Sudan’s Prime Minister Abdalla Hamdok in the capital, Khartoum.
Hamdok survived after his convoy was attacked in bomb explosion.

“Terrorism and evil violence is abhorrent, and must be wiped out”, he said on his Twitter account.

Hamdok assured his people that he was safe and sound following Monday’s assassination attempt.
