Ethiopian Troops Further Push Towards Somalia
Posted by Jack Stephens on April 7, 2007
Al Jazeera is reporting a new offensive in Somalia accompanied by a new incursion of Ethiopian troops. Local residents have reported hundreds of Ethiopian soldiers moving into Mogadishu via trucks and air transport. Ethiopia is still reporting they are withdrawing from Somalia. However there is clearly an offensive going on, allegedly prior to a “National Reconciliation” conference scheduled to begin on April 16th. Perhaps most significantly, the US new allies are being accused of war crimes.
