Medina hospital in Mogadishu

Medina hospital in Mogadishu
Sixteen people have been killed in fighting between Government troops and police in Mogadishu, Somalia, witnesses say.  This underscores the weak United Nations-backed Government's inability to control its armed forces.  Fighting began when police executed a plainclothes soldier they suspected of being an Islamist insurgent, officer Ahmed Nur said. The soldier's colleagues arrived at the shooting in Benadir market and began attacking police, he said. A reporter saw 16 bodies at Medina hospital in Mogadishu. Some of the victims were wearing uniforms. Hospital director Mohamed Yusuf said 30 people were wounded.
