Kenyan, Somali leaders condemn Brussels attacks

24 March 2016, 19:02

Nairobi (Xinhua) -- Presidents of Kenya and Somalia have separately condemned the attacks in Brussels, Belgium on Tuesday that killed more than 30 people and injured over 200 others.

In his statement on Wednesday, Kenyan President Uhuru Kenyatta said "Kenya mourns with the people and government of Belgium following the heinous terrorist attacks Tuesday".

He called on the international community to fight against "extremist enemies".

Somali President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud termed the attacks as "barbaric" and "an affront to humanity".

"We join the world in condemning the brutal attacks of civilians in Brussels. We grieve with those who have lost loved ones. We pray for the families affected," Hassan Mohamud said in a statement.

Hassan Mohamud said terrorism is a global threat, requiring collective responsibility, adding Somalia, a country suffering from Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab, continues to work closely with the international community to eradicate extremist groups.

Blasts ripped through Zaventeen Airport and a metro station in Brussels on Tuesday morning. The Islamic State (IS) has claimed responsibility.

The attack triggered security alerts across Europe. It came four days after Brussels police captured a major suspect in the deadly IS attacks in Paris in November last year.
