Mogdishu: Government troops raided three independent radio stations in the capital Sunday
Sunday - March 2, 2008
The raids came a day after at least 14 people died and 30 were wounded in fighting that pitted soldiers and their Ethiopian allies against suspected insurgents.
"The troops came in, took our equipment and arrested our boss without explanation. We do not know why they are targeting us," Mohamed Abdullahi, a Shabelle radio staff member, told The Associated Press. Shabelle's director, Muqtar Mohamed Hirabe, was arrested.
