Somalia: Battles in Middle Shabelle region leave 8 dead

JOWHAR, Somalia June 27 (Garowe Online) - A series of deadly battles in Middle Shabelle region of southern Somalia has left at least 8 people dead and dozens wounded, Radio Garowe reports.

At least three people were killed and three others wounded when clan militias attacked militias of a rival clan in Adale district, local sources reported.

Militias of the warring clans have targeted each other over the past two weeks, with some sources saying eight people have been killed in revenge attacks during this period.

"Today's fighting was heavy…some nomadic families fled the area," said witness Abdulle, who lives in Adale district.

Separately, fighting between Al Shabaab insurgents and the pro-government Islamic Courts Union militia in Middle Shabelle region left at least five people dead last Thursday.

The fighting took place in Mahaday district, where ICU remnants have staged sporadic attacks on Al Shabaab insurgents who took control of the region last month.
