Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

New York, 4 September 2015 - Statement attributable to the Spokesman for the Secretary-General on Yemen


The Secretary-General condemns in the strongest possible terms the suicide terror attacks against a mosque in the northern Jarraf district of Sana’a during evening prayers on 2 September that left more than 30 people dead and almost 100 injured. Such attacks against places of worship are not justifiable under any circumstances.

The Secretary-General expresses his deepest condolences and sympathies to the families of the victims and expects that the perpetrators of these reprehensible acts will be swiftly brought to justice.
