The Daily Star - Politics - Three dead as Ethiopian troops open fire on protesters in Mogadishu: "MOGADISHU: Ethiopian forces opened fire on demonstrators protesting against their presence in Mogadishu on Sunday, killing at least three, witnesses said, as fresh violence engulfed the Somali capital. A crowd of hundreds of protesters chanting 'Allahu akhbar' (God is great) and wielding sticks had been marching in the streets of southern Mogadishu in reaction to the latest Ethiopian crackdown on the insurgency when the deaths occurred."
