The United States and the United Nations have condemned Saturday’s attack on a Nairobi-bound bus by Al-Shabaab militants that left 28 people dead.
A statement issued Saturday by the National Security Council spokesperson Bernadette Meehan termed the attack as “horrific”.
“The United States condemns in the strongest terms today’s horrific attack in Kenya by the terrorist group Al-Shabaab against innocent civilians,” she said in Washington.
“The United States stands with our Kenyan partners in the effort to counter the threat of terrorism and affirms our ongoing commitment to working with all Kenyans to combat these atrocities,” the statement read.
The United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon also condemned the attack.
