2 Somali Sub-Clans Battle, Killing 10

By Compiled From Wire Services

Fighting between two sub-clans in the breakaway Republic of Somaliland has killed at least 10 people, according to reports reaching Mogadishu on Monday.

Another 16 people were injured when the Habar Jelo and Habar Yoonis sub-clans of the Issak clan fought Saturday in Erigavo, 200 miles east of the Somaliland capital of Hargeisa.

According to radio operators, the fighting appeared to stem from last month’s killing of four Habar Yoonis clansmen by Habar Jelo gunmen. The sub-clans earlier had fought for control of a town.

Mohamed Ibrahim Egal, Somaliland’s president, reportedly sent mediators to Erigavo on Sunday to try and end the fighting.
