Violence in Somalia is now at its worst since 1991.

Fresh violence has killed seven people including six Somali soldiers and one civilian, only a week after the signing of a peace pact.

In north Mogadishu, three Somali government soldiers were shot dead by armed gunmen, as they were looting shops, Press TV correspondent in Somalia reported on Monday.

In a similar incident in south Mogadishu three other soldiers were also killed by unidentified gunmen, eyewitnesses said.

Meanwhile a civilian has also been shot dead in Sarkusta government checkpoint in Mogadishu, after government soldiers allegedly suspected him of carrying out an attack.

Violence in Somalia is now at its worst since the 1991 ouster of dictator Mohamed Siad Barre. Clashes and internal displacement have prompted aid groups to describe the situation as Africa’s worst humanitarian crisis.
