Murder of Omar Hashi Aden / Statement by British Government


LONDON, United-Kingdom, June 19, 2009/African Press Organization (APO)/ — Lord Malloch-Brown issued a statement 18 June 2009 on the murder of Omar Hashi Aden, Minister of Security in the Somali Transitional Federal Government.

He said: ‘I was shocked to learn of the murder of Omar Hashi Aden, Somali Transitional Federal Government (TFG) Minister of Security by a suicide bomber earlier today.  The British Government utterly condemns this latest horrific attack that has resulted in the indiscriminate killing of innocent civilians in the hotel at Beledweyne. I offer my condolences to the families of all those who have lost loved ones and to those who have been injured.
I want to assure Somalia’s long-suffering people that the UK and our other international partners continue to support the TFG and the Djibouti process, that is seeking to achieve peace and stability for the country and which the Somali people deserve’
