Democracy Now: Four African Union Troops Killed in Somalia

And in Somalia, four African Union troops from Uganda died Monday when militants fired mortars at the Somali presidential palace in Mogadishu. Meanwhile, the Committee to Protect Journalists reports that veteran Somali radio journalist Barkhat Awale was killed last week, becoming the second journalist killed in Somalia this year. And the size of the UN force in Somalia could soon increase dramatically as Uganda is offering to send up to 10,000 more troops contingent on receiving funding from the United States.
