26-10-2016, Djibouti: It is with deep sorrow that IGAD learnt of the terrorist attack in Mandera County, North East Kenya, of yesterday during which more than ten persons were murdered.
IGAD offers its deepest condolences to the government and people of Kenya as well as to the families of the victims whose lives have perished in such an unfair and terrible manner.
The people of Mandera, like the rest of their compatriots in Kenya, are known for their sense of community, tolerance, and generosity; which makes this heinous crime that claimed innocent lives truly despicable.
IGAD stands by the Government and people of Kenya in their fight against terror, and commits itself once again to supporting all efforts aimed at deterring the evil of terror from the IGAD region and beyond. ###
