May 5, 2008
A huge protest took place on Sunday in the Somali capital of Mogadishu to protest the US aerial bombing that killed 25 civilians last week.
An AP report quoted 13-year-old Nur Ahmed Nur: .The US attack killed by brother, my sister and my grandmother. We are refugees and we fled from Mogadishu. .Since when did we become terrorists?.
The demonstrators, mostly women and children, took to the streets of the central Somali town of Dusamareeb shouting slogans such as .Down with the Bush administration. and .Down with their stooges.. Abdi-risaq Molim Ahmed, head of education for the town, said that three students died and a fourth was seriously wounded in the US attack against the home of Aden Hashi Ayro. He added that the students were between the ages of 13 and 19.
