MOGADISHU (AFP) — Somalia's beleaguered President Sharif Sheikh Ahmed on Wednesday accused Eritrea of arming Islamic insurgents trying to topple his transitional government.

"We know for sure that the majority of the weapons in the hands of the insurgents are coming from Eritrea," he told foreign correspondents in Mogadishu.

"Eritrea is very much involved here," he said in response to a question from an AFP reporter, adding "we know that Eritrean officers come here and bring money in cash".
