ROME/ NEW YORK/ HONG KONG, 20 April 2015 – “The horrific attack on our UNICEF colleagues today in northern Somalia is an assault not only on them but on the people they served. Our immediate thoughts are with the families of the four staff members who were killed and with those who were injured. All of us at UNICEF are deeply saddened, and deeply angered.
“Our colleagues dedicated their lives to working for the children of Somalia. They are not victims. They and those who were wounded are heroes. We mourn their loss and hope for the full recovery of the injured.
“Our continuing work for the most vulnerable children and their families in Somalia will be a fitting tribute to those we have lost.”
