The Embassy of the United States expresses its profoundest condolences to the Government of Burundi for the numerous Burundian soldiers serving in the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) who were killed and wounded during the al-Shabaab attack on Forward Operating Base Leego on June 26.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the families of these brave soldiers, their wounded compatriots, and the soldiers with whom these honored warriors served at AMISOM. The United States honors the sacrifice these Burundian soldiers made to bring peace and stability to the people of Somalia and the region.
