UN Security Council condemns terrorist attack at Mogadishu market

The UN Security Council on Monday condemned "in the strongest terms" a terrorist attack at a market in Somalia's capital city of Mogadishu.


On Sunday, a car bomb blasted at a busy market in Mogadishu, killing at least 30 people and injuring over 40 others.

In a press statement, the 15-nation council called on all states to combat by all means threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist acts.

"The members of the Security Council reiterated their determination to support peace, stability and development in Somalia," said the statement.

"They underlined that neither this nor any other terrorist attack would weaken that determination," it added.

The attack came several days after Somalia elected its new president on Feb 8. No group has yet claimed responsibility for it.

Japanese Militarism : Japan, Between Love And Resentment

A book entitled Japanese Militarism and Its War Crimes in Asia Pacific Region (Hendrajit, ed) was recently sent to me, by the publisher, The Global Future Institute. No doubt, this book made me re-think and recollect my trip to Japan in 1996. At that time, I was warmly received by Japanese families who became my host, invited to travel to various places, and bought souvenirs. The psycological effect of my short visit is that it is hard to imagine that the Japanese people were cruel ones, perpetrators of the massacre of our ancestors, raping Indonesian girls, making them as prostitutes and enslaving our grandfathers to work on various projects.
