Armed clashes in capital of Somalia

Armed clashes in capital of Somalia

Mogadishu, Sep 16 (Prensa Latina) The armed clashes in this capital on Thursday, between Army forces and the so-called Haramad paramilitary group, resulted in 10 people wounded, local media reported.

Residents in the capital’s neighborhoods of Tarabunka and Banadir told the Somaliguardian digital newspaper that the clashes were apparently for control of peripheral territories.

In addition, residents complained that many stray bullets during the intense shootings between soldiers and the Haramad group hit nearby houses.

The clashes occurred two days after 11 people were killed in this capital in a popular tea vending center, near a military camp, as a result of the detonation of explosives by a suicide bomber from the Al-Shabab radical group, affiliated to the extremist Al-Qaeda network.

In Somalia there are strong political struggles between government and opposition groups, a situation that has gone worse by the delay of the presidential elections, which were scheduled for December last year.
