Local Statement on the Recent Terrorist Attack in Mandera
The EU strongly condemns the Al-Shabaab terror attack on innocent civilians in Mandera in Northern Kenya. Nothing can justify such an heinous crime.

We trust that the government of Kenya will swiftly investigate the attack and bring the culprits to justice. Following this terrorist attack, the Ambassadors of the European Union and its Member States reaffirm the European Union's solidarity with Kenya.
