War crimes investigation after Ethiopia shells civilians in Somali capital

16 April 2007

The European Union (EU) has begun a war crimes investigation after Ethiopian and Ugandan forces backing the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) attacked civilian areas in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

Ethiopia invaded Somalia at the end of last year to install the Transitional Federal Government (TFG), which is backed by the US and the EU.

Ugandan troops arrived as part of an African Union peace keeping force—Amisom—that was supposed to replace the Ethiopians.

But rather than withdrawing, the Ethiopian force has launched a full scale assault on the civilian population of Mogadishu.

More than 1,000 people are thought to have been killed as residential areas came under heavy shelling from artillery, tanks and helicopter gun ships.
