Press Release Regarding The Terrorist Attack Perpetrated In Sana , 07.01.2015

No: 5, 07 January 2015

We strongly condemn the bomb attack perpetrated today (January 7th)  in Sana, the capital of Yemen, which targeted, as it is understood,  the persons  waiting to apply for job vacancies in a police station and caused the death and injury of many.  We wish God’s mercy upon those who lost their lives in the attack, convey our condolences to their relatives and the brotherly people of Yemen, and wish a speedy recovery of those injured.

The control of legitimate State authority throughout the country is essential to fight effectively against the terrorist attacks, which are recently increasing in Yemen as we sadly observe, and to establish the public order.  We reiterate our support to the Yemeni Government towards this goal.
