Fighting rocks Somalia's capital

Fighting rocks Somalia's capital
Continued fighting in Somalia's capital Mogadishu has killed 47 people on Sunday, according to a local human rights group. Most of the dead are believed to be civilians.

Some of them were wounded in fighting on Saturday, but died later of their injuries.  

Sunday is the fifth day of battles between Islamist insurgents and Ethiopian-backed Somali troops.

The latest casualties raise the week's death toll to at least two hundred and thirty
