Saturday, March 23, 2013
After a day of clashes between Somali armed forces, tensions are still high in the coast town of Marka, the administrative capital of lower Shabelle region.
Somali federal government is trying to mediate between warring sides, while military officials from Mogadishu is expected to reach there, but reports still confirm that both sides are re’inforcing their positions.
Residents in Marka are forced to stay in their homes amid fear of violence escalation, while most of the businesses are closed.
Deadly clashes have erupted on Friday when Somali forces turned their guns on themselves in a checkpoint in the town following unidentified dispute.
Merca, an ancient port city on the coast of southern Somalia, is located approximately 70 kms southwest of Somalia’s capital, Mogadishu.
