Somalia: Heavy Fighting Erupts in Central Somalia

Dumay — Heavy fighting between two armed militias are reported flared up in Somalia's central region of Mudug, causing deaths and injures, witnesses said on Tuesday.

Locals told Shabelle Media Network on the phone that the fighting occurred overnight in rebel-held Dumay village, and both sides used heavy and small weapons that could be heard across the area and nearby locations.

Sources said Al shabab fighters mounting vehicles have reached at the battle area, to intervene the fighting between the local armed militias that was spreading across the regions.

The combat has subsided and the situations returned into normal on Tuesday morning.
