Somali Militants Kill AU Peacekeepers In Mogadishu

Somalia's Mujahideen Youths movement claimed responsibility for the killing of seven Ugandan AU peacekeepers in an attack on their headquarters at the premises of the old Egyptian Embassy near Mogadishu airport on August 20th. "Let them know that it is not their decision to declare a ceasefire, nor is it the decision of their masters at the U.N.," said the Internet statement issued by the group. "It is our duty to keep fighting until the whole faith is completely for Allah." The statement also claimed responsibility for the killing of five Ethiopian troops in the town of Baldwein in central Somalia.
