More fighting in Somalia

Fighting has continued for a second day in south Somalia between forces loyal to the faction leader General Mohammed Morgan and the Juba Valley Alliance, which supports the transitional government in Mogadishu.

At least 15 people are reported to have been killed in the battle for the port town of Kismaio.

Friday's clashes were centred around the districts of Dinsor and Bu'aleh.

It is not known who controls them. The battle is the latest in a series of clashes between supporters and opponents of the year-old transitional administration of President Abdulkassim Salat, which is trying to secure control over the whole country.
