Ahram Online , Sunday 24 Jan 2016

Egypt on Saturday strongly condemned a terrorist attack by Al-Shabaab at a restaurant in Mogadishu, which killed around 20 people.

Five gunmen detonated a bomb on Thursday at a beachside restaurant in Mogadishu, then fired at those inside the venue.

The government expresses sincere condolences for the victims, and supports Somalia's government and people in their fight against "vicious terrorism", a statement by the foreign ministry on the ministry's English-language Facebook page said.

Four of the gunmen were killed and one was captured by security forces.
