The UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, condemned the attack in Wajir County, Kenya, on 16 June, in which at least eight police officers were killed when their car struck an improvised explosive device, after three police reservists were kidnapped the day before. He also condemned the car bomb attack in Mogadishu, Somalia, in which at least eight people were killed and dozens were injured.
Both terrorist acts were claimed by the armed group Al-Shabaab, which is particularly active in Eastern Africa. Guterres expressed his deepest condolences to the families of those killed and to the Governments and people of Kenya and Somalia and wished a quick recovery to the injured.
