Carnage in Somali market shelling

leave a comment »

About 40 people have been killed in the Somali capital, mostly when shells were fired on the busy Bakara market.

Witnesses say Ethiopian troops fired mortars after insurgents launched simultaneous attacks on the two main African Union peacekeeping bases.

“There is blood everywhere, and human flesh on the walls,” said market trader Abshir Mohamed Ali.

Eleven people were killed when a shell landed in an alleyway, while six family members died overnight, they say.

Correspondents say the clashes are among the fiercest in Mogadishu for several months.
