Mogadishu 28, Nov.06 ( Sh.M.Network) ““ A large demonstration against Ethiopian military intervention in Somalia is taking place in the Somali capital Mogadishu.

The demonstration is taking place at “21 October Square”? known as Tarebunka where thousands of Somalis have gathered chanting anti-Ethiopian slogans.

The Union of Islamic Courts that had pronounced a jihad or holy war against Ethiopia organized the rally,

Islamists have told rally makers that they opposed UN arms embargo imposed on Somalia in 1992 to be lifted, alleging that US government approved the arms embargo on Somalia to be lifted, an approval Islamists say will facilitate for foreign peacekeepers to penetrate in the country.

The demonstration came as Islamist fighters and Ethiopian troops are on the verge of clashing in Abudwaq, a Somali town near the Ethiopian border.
