Fighting erupts in northern Galkayo town
A heavy combat between Galmudug and Puntland forces is reported to have erupted in northern Galkayo city, the regional capital of Mudug province on Sunday.
The clashes erupted after troops of the rival regional administrations began digging defensive positions in the area for a sign of preparation of new war in the conflict-riddled divided town.
The officials of the two federal member states have signed a peace agreement in November to end the recurrent clashes that forced thousands to flee their houses as hundreds lost their lives.
The rival states clashed over the control of the city, 750Km north of Somali capital.
