Two killed in Somali army infighting in Beledweyne

At least two soldiers have been killed, and several others wounded when Somali soldiers fought each in the west of Beledweyne city, about 350Km north of Mogadishu.

The battle erupted after the soldiers quarreled over money collected from local public transportations at an army checkpoint in Howlwadag village, according to a resident.

Salah Mumim Muse, a local elder in the area said both sides have engaged heavy and small fire, before government troops and AMISOM intervened in deadly gunfight later.

Somali soldiers backed by Djibouti troops serving with the African Union mission in Somalia known as (AMISOM) took over the control of the checkpoint.
