CAIRO, Dec 28 (MENA) - Egypt's Mufti Dr Shawki Allam vehemently denounced on Saturday a bloody terrorist bombing at a Somali police checkpoint in Mogadishu, which left at least 50 people dead.

Allam stressed that the values of Islamic Sharia are totally against any form of aggression against any human being, highlighting the subversive role played by bloodthirsty terror groups to undermine state stability.

The grand mufti extended his heartfelt condolences to the victims' families as well as the Somali government and people, wishing all the wounded a speedy recovery.

Earlier on Saturday, a car bomb attack targeted a security checkpoint in the Somali capital, leaving dozens dead and injured.

No entity has so far claimed responsibility for the attack, but al-Qaeda-affiliated al-Shabab group usually targets government officials and buildings in the African country.
