Ethiopia on Monday awarded its four-surgeon medical team for their service in helping terror victims in Somalia.

The Ethiopian team spent 10 days in neighboring Somalia to help victims of the worst terror attack in Mogadishu’s history.

At least 358 people were killed and many others wounded in the Oct. 14 attack.

Foreign Minister Workneh Gebeyehu said the team’s humanitarian service “signifies a pan-African solidarity and people-to-people relationship in action.”

In addition to dispatching the medical team, Ethiopia has also provided 8 tons of medical supplies to Somalia. Enditem
