Ethiopia attacks Somalia airports

Ethiopian jets have bombed two airports in Somalia in a widening operation
against an Islamic militia group.

Jets hit the international airport in the capital, Mogadishu, and another
at Balidogle, in the south of the country.


Two senior leaders of the UIC, Sheikh Hassan Dahir Aweys and Sheikh Sharif
