Islamic Courts Union (ICU) fighters have killed nine militias in Mahadaay, in Somalia’s Middle Shabeele region and captured the town.

At least 558 guns were taken from the militiamen within hours. Nine of them who refrained from dropping their guns were killed, according to the Press TV correspondent in Southern Mogadishu.

In the meantime fears of a deadly battle between fighters of the Islamic Courts Union and the Ethiopian troops is looming as hundreds of Ethiopian soldiers with armored vehicles are heading to the area.

The ongoing violence in Somalia has killed thousands of people and displaced hundreds of thousands more since last year, prompting United Nations officials to refer to the situation in the East African nation as the worst humanitarian crisis in Africa.
