Hirshabelle President Osoble In Bulo Burde After Djibouti AU soldier Killed In Fighting Over Khat .

Hirshabelle Presiden Ali Abdullahi Osoble on Thursday landed in Bulo Burde to defuse tension that led to the killing of a Djiboutian soldier. Bulo Burde was turned into a battlefield on Wednesday when Somalia National Army and Amisom Djibouti troops were engaged in a firefight that had been caused by a khat incident. As Osoble seeked to resolve the matter Amisom has launched an investigation into the killing of the Djiboutien soldier. According to a regional official the skirmishes between the two were  sparked off by an incident where a Djiboutien soldier is alleged to have slapped a lady Khat trader. Somalia National Army troops followed up the peacekeeper but he fled away. SNA soldiers confronted Djibouti troops and a firefight ensued leading to the killing of one Djiboutien soldier. This is the second time that a Khat incident involving a Djiboutien soldier has led to bloodshed and killing.
