Somalia: Bloody fighting between Ahlu Sunna Walajam’a group and al-Shabaab islamist fighters in Dusa-Mareb in Galguduud Region
At least 47 people have been killed and 100 injured in fighting in the central Somali town of Dhuusa Marreeb, a human rights official has told the BBC.
Ali Yasin Gedi, of Somali human rights group Elman, said many people had fled the town where allies of the government fought to drive out Islamist rebels.
The pro-government Ahlu Sunna group is said to have recaptured the strategic town from al-Shabaab militants.
The militants were reportedly in control of the town for a few hours.
