ALGIERS- Algeria has strongly condemned Tuesday's attacks in Uganda that left six people dead and about thirty others injured, the ministry of Foreign Affairs and National Community Abroad said Thursday.

"Algeria condemns in the strongest terms the attacks that shook Uganda's capital, Kampala, on 16 November 2021, killing six people and injuring about thirty others," the ministry said in a statement.

"On this painful occasion, Algeria assures our brothers in Uganda, both people and government, of its full support against terrorist aggression and extends sincere condolences to the families of the victims and wishing a speedy recovery for the injured," the statement stressed.

"Algeria is convinced that the people of Uganda will be able to mobilize its forces in this painful ordeal to overcome this difficult situation in unity and citizenship."

"This new manifestation of blind violence shows, once again, that the eradication of terrorism, which must remain a priority, requires solidarity at the continental level and increased cooperation to reactivate the mechanisms put in place to counter this growing scourge," the statement concludes.
