Al Shabaab Blocks Roads into al Bakara Market to Stop Defections

Mogadishu (Mareeg)-Unidentified dead bodies were seen early on Sunday morning at the Industrial Road (Jidka-Warshadaha) in the capital Mogadishu, residents said.
The dead bodies were two old men who were seen laying on the road after daybreak prayer at frontlines between Islamist militias of Al-shabab and the African union peacekeeping forces, in particular Burundians those have a military base there, reports said.

No one could exactly confirm who have killed these old men and no one identified them yet.

The killing of these men comes as Islamist militias of Al-shabab were reported to have cut off two main streets through war zones around Bakara market that old, and poor people who are not able to pay bus-fares used to go to their homes on foot passing the risk ways there.

Al-shabab forces refused people to use those ways for a fear of their militias surrendering to Somali government pass those streets, a porter in Bakara market told Mareeg this morning.

People in the capital, in particular those who usually go to Bakara market and search for their daily bread face dangers from warring groups in Mogadishu.
