Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama has condemned the terror attacks in Cote d’Ivoire and Turkey on Sunday.
In an official statement, Mahama described the two terror attacks as “despicable and unconscionable”.
On Sunday, gunmen opened fire on a beach resort in Cote d’Ivoire’s southern town of Grand-Bassam, killing at least 16 people. Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM) has claimed responsibility.
In Turkey, a car bomb explosion in Guven Park, a main transport hub in the capital Ankara, left at least 34 killed and 125 people wounded. No group has yet claimed the attack.
“Ghana stands by the two countries in their moments of profound grief and adversity. Let us work together as a global community to win the war against terrorism even as we strengthen global, regional and national security mechanisms,” President Mahama said. Enditem
