Mogadishu, 9 August (AKI) - A campaign by an Islamist group in Somalia to extend its control over the country is meeting some resistance in some areas such as the central city of Galkayo, where demonstrators have staged protests. On Tuesday three people were wounded when supporters of the Union of Islamic Courts opened fire on a crowd protesting against the Islamists' attempts to control the city.

According to the news portal, Somalinet, the protest was organised by supporters of Abdi Qeydid, who along with other warlords controlled larger parts of Somalia before they were defeated by Union of Islamic Courts fighters this year

The protestors chanted slogans against the Union of Islamic Courts which controls the capital Mogadishu.
