UNITED NATIONS, January 14. /TASS/. United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has condemned Wednesday’s terrorist attacks in a mosque in Cameroon and a medical center in Pakistan killing 28 people in all.
"The Secretary-General condemns Wednesday's suicide bombing close to the premises of a polio eradication center in Quetta, Pakistan, reportedly killing at least 15 people, and wounding 25 other," according to a statement attributable to the spokesman for the United Nations Secretary General issued on Wednesday.
"The Secretary-General condemns the deadly suicide bombing in the village of Kouyape, in the Far North region of Cameroon, during the morning prayer at the mosque. The attack, perpetrated by suspected Boko Haram elements, resulted in the death of an estimated 13 people, including the imam, and numerous injured," another statement said.
Ban Ki-moon extended his condolences to the victims and governments of the two countries and reiterated "his call for a comprehensive approach to preventing and countering the scourge of terrorism, and addressing its root causes, in compliance with international humanitarian, human rights and refugee law."
"The Secretary-General reiterates that nothing justifies terrorism," the statement said.
The African Union’s Donors Conference to mobilize resources for the Multinational Joint Task Force (MNJTF) to combat the Boko Haram terrorist group will be held on February 1, 2016 in the Ethiopian capital city Addis Ababa. The U.N. Secretary General said he welcomedthis initiative.
