The EU Special Envoy to Somalia, Michele Cervone d’Urso, condemns today’s brutal murder of the Somali Member of Federal Parliament, Honourable Mohammed Mohamud Hayd, in Mogadishu and extends his sincere condolences to his family, friends and colleagues in the Parliament. He calls on Somali authorities to bring to justice those responsible without delay.

This coward and senseless assassination is an attack against the nation,  against peace and reconciliation, against the Somali  people, stated the EU Special Envoy. Committing these atrocities during the holy month of Ramadan shows even more how little respect terrorists have for the people of Somalia. 

The European Union, together with the rest of the international community, continues to support Somalia, its leaders and its people on their course to peace and stability. A course that will not be deviated by such cowardly actions. (END)
