At least 15 people were killed on Thursday in fierce fighting between two rival clans in central Somalia, a local security official told dpa.
More than 10 others were injured and many people were displaced by the fighting in the Mataban district of Hiiraan province, Abdi Yare Elmi told dpa.
“The conflict between two rival clan militias … is all about grazing land ownership in the area” said Dahir Yusuf, a traditional leader in Mataban.
Troubled Somalia’s population is divided into clans and sub-clans that often engage in territorial disputes and political arguments.
