The telegram reads, in part:
“We vehemently condemn this outrageous crime against peaceful civilians. We support the efforts of the Somalian leadership and people to fight the terrorist threat.”
The Russian President also expressed his condolences and support for the families of the victims and wished a speedy recovery to those injured in the attack.
On October 14, a truck filled with explosives blew up on a busy street of Mogadishu, the Somalian capital, killing at least 300 people.
