Demonstrations in Mogadishu

Some Somalis actually quite liked the government of the Union of Islamic Courts. There is quite a bit of coverage in the Italian press (having controlled the area as a colonial power. The war that the US got up in concert with Ethiopia may have opened a new front in the War on Islam.

"Ethiopian soldiers and Somali police fired on a group of demonstrators protesting in Mogadishu and shot dead at least one person, a 13 year-old child. Another 17 were wounded. The announcement was made by a government source, claiming that the police came under fire. An Ethiopian soldier was killed when he mishandled his grenade." [Corriere della Sera]
