"The entire international community as a whole fights terrorism in all its forms and manifestations, and we must continue our concerted efforts," the ministry said in a press release published on Monday.

A truck bomb exploded outside the Safari Hotel in Mogadishu last Saturday, flattening buildings and setting vehicles on fire.

The death toll of the biggest-ever explosion is 276, another nearly 300 people were injured, local authorities said. The death toll is still expected to rise.
