Deploring attacks in Kenya Annan urges broad fight against terrorism

A UN spokesperson said Mr. Annan was “appalled” by yesterday’s suicide bomb attack on a hotel, where at least 13 people were killed and many injured, and by the apparent attempt to shoot down an Israeli civilian aircraft. “The Secretary-General is relieved that a greater catastrophe was avoided,” Hua Jiang said in a press statement, stressing that he is “utterly opposed to all acts of terrorism, from whatever quarter.” Yesterday’s attacks in Kenya once again underscore the need for a broad and sustained strategy to fight the scourge of terrorism, the statement emphasized. Condemning the terrorist attacks “in the strongest possible terms,” the Secretary-General extended his condolences to the families of the victims and to the Kenyan and Israeli Governments.
