Press Statement by U.S. Ambassador to Kenya Robert F. Godec

The United States strongly condemns the brutal murder by al-Shabaab today of 28 people travelling on a bus from Mandera to Nairobi.  We extend our deepest condolences to the families and friends of the victims of the attack.

This atrocity exemplifies the danger terrorists pose to all civilized societies.  It is important that we remain united, engage all communities, and continue to work together to end violent extremism.  The United States stands with Kenya in the effort to defeat terrorism.
