 The Foreign Ministry here on Wednesday strongly condemned a deadly error attack in Somalia earlier in the day, according to an official statement.

 “We strongly believe that terrorist attacks, such as the one perpetrated today, cannot derail Somalia’s progress in ensuring stability,” the ministry said.

“We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives in the attack, convey our condolences to the families who lost their loved ones and wish speedy recovery to the wounded,” it added.

At least 14 victims were killed and dozens wounded, including three journalists, when twin car bombs and gunmen targeted a popular hotel near the country’s parliament building, police said.

Internal Security Minister Abdirasak Omar Mohamed told a news conference at the scene that at least 10 civilians and four al-Shabaab attackers were among the dead and 51 others were wounded when al-Shabaab militants targeted the Dayah Hotel in the capital, Mogadishu.
