CAIRO, Dec. 14 (Xinhua) -- Egypt on Thursday condemned the deadly terrorist attack on a police academy in Somalia's capital Mogadishu.
"The Egyptian government and people stand in solidarity with the Somalian government and people against terrorism," the Egyptian Foreign Ministry said in the statement.
A suicide bomber disguised as a policeman blew himself up inside a police training camp in Mogadishu on Thursday, leaving at least 18 killed and 15 others wounded.
Somalia's terrorist group Al-Shabaab claimed responsibility for the attack.
Since January 2016, the armed conflict in Somalia due to Al-Shabaab's rebellion has left over 2,000 people killed and more than 2,500 others injured, according to a recent UN report.
Egypt also suffers from a wave of terror attacks at home that have killed hundreds of policemen and soldiers as well as dozens of the Coptic minority since the army toppled former Islamist President Mohamed Morsi in July 2013.
