Somalia: Ethiopian Troops Move Away From Kala-Beyrka Junction in Central Region

Beledweyn — The Ethiopian troops in the Kala-beyrka intersection in Hiran region have moved away from their bases there on Thursday morning, witnesses told Shabelle radio on Thursday.

Reports from Hiran region say that the Ethiopian troops were in the junction about two months and completely left from their military bases there in the region and moved to the side of Fer-Fer town in the Somali region in Ethiopia.

The Ethiopian troops arrived there on 19th May 2009 and conducted more search operations in the neighborhoods and the traffic traveling on the road that connects between the towns of the region during their presence there.

It is unclear the reason of the Ethiopian troops' withdrawal from the Kala-bayrka intersection in central Somalia.
