Baku-APA. Turkey on Tuesday condemned a suicide bomb attack on a government compound in the Somali capital of Mogadishu, APA reports.

"We severely condemn this heinous attack that targeted innocent children and their families. We send our condolences to the families of the victims and our wishes of swift recovery for the wounded," said the Turkish Foreign Ministry in a statement.

The statement said students was queueing outside the Ministry of Higher Education when the blast occurred, waiting for the results of scholarships offered by Turkey.

"The incident causes even more concern that the attack took place at a time when a road map had been agreed upon to secure an end to the transition period in Somalia and steps were taken for a national political accord," the statement said.

Somali President Sheikh Sharif Sheikh Ahmed on Tuesday strongly condemned the deadly suicide attack against government building in Mogadishu as death toll rose to 70 while the injured numbered 150 others.
