Saudi Arabia concerned over escalation of unrest in Mogadishu: Foreign ministry

DUBAI : Saudi Arabia’s foreign ministry said it “greatly concerned” over the developments of events in Somalia, which led to multiple fatalities in its capital, Mogadishu, state news agency SPA reported .
The ministry stressed the importance for no further escalation of troubles and expressed its keenness to reach a solution in the country through dialogue.
It also offered its condolences to the families of the victims and wished the injured a speedy recovery.
Earlier in February, at least three people were killed and eight others wounded after a car bomb detonated near a security checkpoint along a key road in Mogadishu, security official and witnesses said.
The capital is regularly targeted by attacks by the Al-Qaeda-linked Al-Shabab group who have been waging a long and violent insurgency seeking to unseat the internationally backed government in Mogadishu.
They were driven out of Mogadishu in 2011, but still control territory from where they plan and launch frequent, deadly strikes against government and civilian targets.
