Shalanbod — Hundreds of people, including women and children have Monday taken to the main streets in Shalanbod town of Lower Shabelle Region, 110 Km south of Mogadishu, to protest against increasing robbery.
Reports said the protestors gathered at squars in the city as they have been carrying banners written in slogans against Somali forces controlling the town.
"The army began robbing, killing and beating the local civilians,after they were attacked yesterday by unknown assailants. We don't know why they [forces] are committing such offence acts," a resident at the rally.
However, the residents called upon the Somali government to stop soon the army from continuing their hateful actions in the town and bring into justice who committed robbery.
