Fights in Mogadishu

Heavy fighting raged early yesterday in the center of Mogadishu between Islamist insurgents and soldiers of the African Union's peacekeeping force in Somalia (AMISOM).
Artillery exchanges and automatic weapons fire broke out around 2:00a.m. (2300 GMT Thursday) and continued through the night. After dying down a little the violence resumed in full intensity at dawn. The fighting was concentrated around the strategic K4 junction halfway between the Somali capital's airport and the port.
