|Iran censures terrorist attack in Kenya||
TEHRAN – The Iranian Foreign Ministry condemned on Sunday a terrorist attack on a shopping mall in Kenya which has so far left at least 59 people dead and 175 others injured.
Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Marzieh Afkham condemned the attack and expressed sympathy with the people and government of the African country.
Iran refutes and condemns any terrorist activity at any corner of the world which targets the lives of innocent people, she added.
Militants stormed a shopping mall in Nairobi in the worst terrorist attack Kenya has suffered since the U.S. embassy bombings in east Africa that brought al-Qaeda to international attention in the 1990s.
Somali militant group al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attacks via a Twitter account. The spokesperson claimed the atrocity was in response to the presence of Kenyan troops in Somalia, the Guardian reported.
