Firefights In Mogadishu - Oh, the Reminiscence

MOGADISHU, Somalia - Islamic militiamen and secular fighters battled for control of Somalia's capital Wednesday despite promises of a cease-fire, and the death toll rose to at least 96, with nearly 200 wounded. The firing of heavy weapons echoed through the city as fighting spread to another Mogadishu neighborhood. The battle between the Islamic Court Union and the Alliance for the Restoration of Peace and Counterterrorism has centered on the northern neighborhood of Sii-Sii, with neither side gaining an advantage. Most of the victims were civilians caught in the crossfire.
