Mogadishu (HOL) - The Somali government deployed a large number of heavily armed troops to the Middle Shabelle region, where deadly inter-clan fighting has occurred over the past two weeks. 

The Commander of the Somali Police Force, Sulub Ahmed Firin, stated that the army forces intended to intervene in the inter-clan fighting in villages around the Biyo Adde area in the Middle Shabelle region. 

He instructed the police force to ensure the security of the areas to mitigate further casualties.

Over 30 people, including women and children, were killed in the clashes between two clan militias in the villages of Bur Shiiq and Biyo Cadde in southern Somalia’s Middle Shabelle region last week.
