An Ethiopian warplane on Monday bombed Mogadishu international airport a day after Addis Ababa acknowledged its military was fighting Islamist forces in Somalia, officials said.
"I have seen a jet dropping a bomb on the runway, everybody in the airport was scared when the explosion was heard," said Mahad Alasaow, an airport staff said.
"I though it was a landing, but seconds later, it dropped a bomb and flew away," Alasaow added.
