Somalia: Mortar Fire Kills Eight in Mogadishu

Al Jazeera English - Africa - Sporadic clashes rock Mogadishu
At least eight people have killed and 17 others injured in the Somali capital after the al-Shabab anti-government fighter group fired mortars at the airport and presidential palace.

The attack on Saturday prompted a response from African peacekeepers.

The assault took place as Sharif Sheikh Ahmed, the Somali president, arrived from the Kenyan capital Nairobi after a meeting with Hillary Clinton, the US secretary of state, police said.
