The Somali government also stated that a new administrative board will be designated in cooperation with Turkey to resume the school’s educational activities.

Somalia also joined a chorus of nations worldwide in condemning the failed coup, expressing solidarity with the Turkish government and the Turkish people during their democratic resistance.

Friday night saw military elements make a “vile” attempt to overthrow Turkey’s elected government, according to Prime Minister Binali Yildirim. Around 160 people were martyred in the ensuing violence.
