MOGADISHU, Somalia, July 15 (Horn Observer) At least 14 people were killed and dozens wounded after inter-clan fighting broke out near the Coastal town of Adale of Middle Shabelle region, officials said.

Ahmed Meyre Makaraan, governor of Middle Shabelle region said that fighting between two clans in a village near the coastal town of Adale claimed 14 people dead and dozens wounded,  according to a interview with the VOA Somali service.

According to Ahmed, the fighting subsided after the regional administration succeeded in intervening the clan militias. The fighting is believed to have started from grazing land areas, which is the result of the resumed clan hostilities among the Somali clans.


The elders and intellectuals in the areas are planning to end the clan hostilities. The grazing lands in the remote rural areas are believed to be the major cause of the resumed interclan fighting.
