MOGADISHU, Somalia Jan 4 (Garowe Online) - At least 9 people were killed
in separate incidents of violence in Somalia's war-torn capital
Mogadishu, Radio Garowe reported Sunday.
Four Ethiopian soldiers died instantly when a roadside bomb exploded in
the outskirts of Mogadishu, witnesses said.
The soldiers were on foot patrol near a checkpoint and were searching
vehicles for explosives, a Somali military official said.
Separately, Somali soldiers shot and killed three civilians near Hotel
Jubba in Mogadishu, with witnesses saying the civilians were targeted
after "refusing to pay extortion."
Fighting erupted moments later among government troops, leading to the
deaths of two soldiers and wounding four other people, including a
female caught in the crossfire.
Ethiopian troops have began withdrawing from parts of Mogadishu, but
insurgent attacks have increased over the past week.
