I am horrified at the death and destruction caused by a bombing attack in the Somali capital Mogadishu on Saturday. At least 276 people have lost their lives and many more have been injured.
Terrorist atrocities like this are an affront to ongoing efforts to secure peace in Somalia. I of course hope that the perpetrators are brought to justice but, more immediately, I know many in Bristol's Somali community have lost family members and friends in this attack - and that many are still waiting for news of their loved ones.
If you live in Bristol West and if there is any assistance that my team or I can offer, please do not hesitate to get in touch: http://www.debbonaire.co.uk/casework_mp.
