The African Union has today lost one of its peacekeepers killed in the explosion of an anti-personnel mine planted and triggered by insurgent elements opposed to peace and stability in Somalia.

The peacekeeper was killed while on a routine road sweeping check for explosive devices.

The African Union unequivocally condemns this cowardly and barbaric act perpetrated against an AMISOM peacekeeper deployed in Mogadishu to safeguard Somali lives.

This act aimed at undermining the peace process in Somalia will not deter the African Union, the people of Somalia and the United Nations in their determination and commitment to intensify their efforts towards peace and stability, in line with the recently concluded Agreement in Djibouti.
