Somalia: March 4, 2003

Fighting between warlords from southern Somalia left ten dead and dozens wounded. Fighters loyal to warlord Mohamed Omar Habeb fought members of the Mohamed Musa clan over control of a roadblock. A major source of income for warlords are roadblocks, which are used to collect fees from trucks that want to pass. This includes relief supplies.
