At least 140 people were killed in two days of fighting in the Somali capital which ended after one of the city's last holdout warlords surrendered to Islamist militias, a hospital official said on Tuesday.
"Approximately 140 people have died and 150 others were injured. It was a very heavy exchange with most of the people dying outside of hospital," Ali Moallim, a senior administrator at Mogadishu's Madina hospital, told the agency.
