Heavy fighting in Mogadishu kills 19

Islamist insurgents launched multiple attacks on government bases and African Union peacekeeping troops and at least 19 people, including women and children, were killed in the heaviest fighting in a day seen in Somalia's capital in months.
Friday's battle came two days before President Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed marks his first year in power and underscored that his goal of ending violence in a nation shattered by nearly two decades of war remains as elusive as ever.
