Somalia: Heavy fighting erupts again in Galkayo

A fierce combat between Galmudug and Puntland forces has erupted again in the central town of Galkayo amid peace deal brokered by United Arab Emirates.

The thud of mortar shelling and intense gunfire could be heard across the city, as the rival forces engage in a battle and exchange heavy and  small weaponry.

The Sunday’s clash followed a week after the leaders of Puntland and Galmudug have reached last week a ceasefire agreement in Abu Dhabi of UAE.

Galkayo has been beset by recurrent clashes between the two nighbouring federal states forces who are fighting for control.

Scores of people, mostly civilians died in Galkayo conflict and thousands of families fled the town due the intensifying violence.
