Mogadishu. February 26 (Sh.M.Network) - Inhabitants closer to Ethiopian military bases in the Somali capital Mogadishu have cut an Ethiopian flag to pieces on Monday morning.
Residents reported that the Ethiopian flag was erected three areas near the Ethiopian bases in Mogadishu. Witnesses have told Shabelle reporter Raage that people were annoyed by Somali words written in the flag indicating that Somalia is the sixth region of Ethiopia.
Ethiopian officers who spoke with Shabelle however denied they erected the flag or wrote such words on it. They have pointed out that people who wanted to create disturbances between the Ethiopians and Somalis were behind the incident.
Some of the Ethiopian soldiers who spoke Somalia said they did not come to capture Somalia. “We came here to assist the Somalia transitional government,” they said.
