Heavy fighting between Somali government forces backed by Ethiopian troops and insurgents in Mogadishu has killed at least 31 Somalis and wounded 60 in the past 24 hours, a local human rights group said on Tuesday.
« The killings were from gunshots and explosions in different parts of the city, » head of Elman Human Rights Group, Sudani Ali Ahmed, told Reuters. « It is totally unacceptable and … against human rights. »
In one incident, Ethiopian soldiers opened fire on a bus full of civilians, killing 10 people and wounding several others, Ahmed said.
