Mogadishu is gripped by daily violence.

More than 11 missiles have rocked south Mogadishu’s international airport, which is heavily guarded by African Union peacekeeping forces.

The military wing of Somalia’s Islamic group known as the al-Shabaab Fighters, fired missiles into the Aden-Adde airport on Wednesday, leaving an unknown number of people dead or injured, witnesses say.

Meanwhile, the Islamic Court Union (ICU) fighters captured Jowhar town, northern Mogadishu in a bloodless siege for the third time in two weeks.

Witnesses say at least 16 Somali government vehicles were seized and many people were freed from jails by the fighters.

Also in Dharkeenley district, south of Mogadishu more than five gunmen killed a Somali government soldier, Press TV correspondent reports.

In another incident on Wednesday, a group of armed men clad in Somali government soldiers’ uniform attacked civilians in south Mogadishu’s Medina district, killing people, raping women and looting shops.

However, a group of armed locals took matters into their own hands, killing at least three of the bandits as they tried to steal cell phones from a shop. The government has denied any links to the unidentified group.
