STATEMENT FROM THE CANADIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE REGARDING SOMALI SPORT LEADERS' DEATHS

STATEMENT FROM THE CANADIAN OLYMPIC COMMITTEE REGARDING SOMALI SPORT LEADERS' DEATHS

"The international sport community mourns the loss of two leaders today. Somali Olympic Committee President Aden Hagi Yeberow and Somali Football Federation President Said Mohamud Nur dedicated themselves to the Olympic ideal of the unifying power of sport and the good it could do in their country.
We strongly condemn those who were behind the suicide blast during the ceremony at Somalia's newly reopened national theatre which killed at least 10 people. We offer our heartfelt sympathy to the families and loved ones of those injured and killed in this moment of sorrow, and to the Somali Olympic Committee and Somali Football Federation."

-Marcel Aubut, President, Canadian Olympic Committee
