Somali Prime Minister Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed condemned the "cowardly attack" and recognized the deceased as "a committed parliamentarian who worked tirelessly to serve the people of Somalia and help rebuild our country."
The prime minister insisted, "This cowardly attack will not derail the progress made in Mogadishu and across Somalia. The security agencies will investigate this cowardly killing and ensure that those who carried out this attack face justice."
Islamist militant group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility in a statement posted online Monday.
