Ethiopian Brutality

February 16, 2007 - Fighting between the Resistance and Ethiopian troops which erupts almost every middays and nights caused scores of civilians dead. The Ethiopian troops using heavy artillery fire against the civilians population every day for the last 4 days.

Residents say that the Ethiopians are too scared to come into the neighborhoods and fight the resistance hand the hand and they are only using heavy fire which is only killing innocent civilians.

One artillery round fired by the Ethiopians from the sea port area landed on the beach and killed 1 boy and injured 3 of his friends (picture) after a barrage of mortars from the resistance inflicted casualties on their troops.

The "government" are appearing to loose control of the city and only holding the presidential palace, the sea port and the airport which comes under daily attack. The ambushes by the resistance are being conducted during the morning times as well as the nights since there is hardly any police forces on the streets, many towns have lost authority since the Islamic courts withdrew from the area, and mostly controlled by clan gunmen and local gangs.
