Somalia: Dozens More Killed in Second Day of Mogadishu Violence
Ethiopian troops protecting Somalia's interim government expanded into neighborhoods in the volatile capital Mogadishu on Sunday, sparking a second round of deadly street violence.
At least 15 people were killed in Mogadishu's Huriwa district when Ethiopian troops entered neighborhoods deemed to be insurgent hideouts, witnesses said.
Two Ethiopian soldiers were confirmed to be among the dead. But the remaining number of dead people includes civilians and insurgent fighters.
A witness told Garowe Online that "all civilians" fled their homes in Waharadde neighborhood after Ethiopian army tanks and shells hit civilian homes.
