Mogadishu — At least one civilian has been killed and five others have been injured in fighting between Islamists and AU troops in Mogadishu, overnight, witnesses told Shabelle Media.
The Islamist rebels who are fighting against the Somali fragile government have vowed to continue the fighting till the government collapses and the African Union troops leave the country.
Residents said the two sides have used heavy machine guns, mortars, and rockets which frightened many civilians in the capital Mogadishu.
The Insurgents attacked Jalle Siad Academy, and former Somali University building in south Mogadishu, bases of Burundian troops from African Union peace keepers.
The fighting lasted for about two hours and the sound of gun fire could be heard in many parts of the capital.
