Ankara offers condolences to Somalia after flood damage
“We are deeply saddened by the tragic loss of life and extensive damage caused by the heavy flooding in the city of Beledweyne in Somalia,” Turkish Foreign Ministry said in a statement.
“We share the grief of the friendly and brotherly Somali people, wish Allah’s mercy upon those who lost their lives and extend our condolences to their families,” the statement added.
Some 72,000 families became homeless due to the flood caused by heavy rains in the Hiran region for 5 days.
During the rainy season in Somalia, occasional boat disasters occur in the rivers.
