A terrorist attack that hit Mogadishu seaport in Somalia on Sunday left dozens of casualties and many more wounded.

The attack was carried out by the Al-Shabaab terrorist group and targeted the civilian population who have already paid a heavy price in a country affected by decades of war.

In a statement issued on Monday, the European Union (EU) condemned the attack and expressed its condolences to the families of the victims, and wished a speedy recovery to those injured.
