Somali gunmen attacked a convoy of Ethiopian soldiers in Mogadishu late on Sunday, and fighting ensued for half an hour, a Somali government source said on Monday.

"An Ethiopian convoy was hit near Arafat hospital. One of their trucks was hit and burnt," the source said referring to a hospital in a northern Mogadishu neighbourhood where government and Ethiopian troops had searched houses for weapons on Sunday.

"Thirty minutes of heavy fighting followed. There are deaths on both sides but I don't have numbers."
