Unknown helicopters target a vehicle in south Somalia
Posted on Monday, September 14, 2009 @ 20:17:50 CDT by kwpnews


MOGADISHU (Xinhua) - Six unidentified helicopters have fired missiles and used heavy machineguns in an attack against a vehicle in the southern Somali town of Barawe, killing some of its occupants and seizing the wounded, residents said on Monday.

It was not clear what the identity of the helicopters or occupants of the targeted vehicle were. The area where the attack took place is under the control of the Islamist Al Shabaab movement whose one of the main leaders was killed by U.S. missile attack in central Somalia town of Guriel.

Neither the Somali government nor the rebel group so far commented on the attack.

The development came after Somalis held mass funeral on Saturday for nine disabled war veterans who died Friday night after a mortar shell fired by Islamist insurgents opposed to the Somali government slammed their homes in Mogadishu.

The former soldiers, most of who disabled in the 1977 war with neighboring Ethiopia, lived with their families in a dilapidated and disused hospital in Mogadishu where they are dependent on the support of local residents in Mogadishu and Somalis in the Diaspora.

The veterans are well respected by Somalis and the funeral was attended by senior Somali security officials and security was tightened along the route to the cemetery by African Union peacekeeping forces.

Although no group had claimed responsibility for the attack, the Somali government official had accused the Islamist Al Shabaab for the death and injury of the veterans and their families.

Al-Shabaab which controls much of southern and central Somalia is fighting the Somali government forces and African Union peacekeeping troops.

Also at the weekend, at least three people were killed and nine others wounded on Saturday Somaliland, northwest Somalia, following clashes between protests and local police, officials and residents said.

Angry demonstrators clashed with riot police who prevented them from entering into the parliament building which the authorities in Somaliland said was closed down to avoid a repeat of the last week's scuffles between the opposition and pro-government lawmakers
