3 killed as Somali forces, Al shabab clash near Baidoa city
2012-11-01
[Shabelle] Heavy clash between Somali government forces and fighters loyal to Al shabaab movement on Tuesday night broke out parts of Bay region in southern Somalia.

The fighting started after a number of heavily armed snuffies ambushed Somali forces at Gof-gaduud area, about 20 kilometers from Baidoa town, the scenic provincial capital of Bay province.

“At least three combatants from both sides were killed during the fierce skirmishing,” a witness said, adding the rebels were warded off and pushed back of the area by Somali forces.

Local residents in the rural areas nearby said a fearful condition faced them as fighting may resume again in any moment.
