At least 21 people have been killed in the Somali capital of Mogadishu after fighters from an armed group clashed with African Union troops.
Scores more people were injured in the battles, which included artillery shelling and gunfire, on Wednesday, Ali Muse, an ambulance service chief, said.
Witnesses said that African Union (AU) troops shelled the area of Bakara market, the city's largest market, following an attack on one of their convoys.
"The medical teams got an emergency alert and they rushed to Bakara market where they have collected around 16 dead bodies of civilians who were killed in the shelling," Muse said.Read More
