Aideed complains of Ethiopian military activities


Mogadishu-based faction leader Hussein Aideed has charged that Ethiopian troops are providing military training and logistics in Bakool region to a rival warlord, Mohamed Hirsi Morgan.

In a statement, he appealed to the UN, the Arab League, Organisation of Islamic Conference and the Organisation of African Unity to intervene and investigated Ethiopia's "illegal military activities" inside Somalia.

Aideed claimed there was an Ethiopian training camp in Wajiid town, Bakool. A source in the area told IRIN that training camps were known to exist and that Ethiopian backing of militia in the southern region was "an open secret".

Sources in the region have also confirmed the presence of General Mohamed Hersi Morgan.
