Many dead in Somali clashes

At least 21 people were killed and 42 wounded in fighting in Somalia, a human rights group said on Thursday.

Fighting between clans left 14 people dead and 24 injured in the village of Huldonyale in central Somalia, the Mogadishu-based Elman rights group said.

Government troops alongside African Union peacekeepers exchanged shells in Mogadishu with al Shabaab fighters. Seven people were killed and 18 wounded.

The clan fighting was believed to be a continuation of clashes over pasture and water.

"This clash has been recurring for months. It seems there is no sign of a ceasefire agreement between these two neighbouring clans," Ali Yasin Gedi, the vice chairman of Elman, told Reuters.
