FROM SAM KILEY IN NAIROBI
ETHIOPIAN forces pounded Muslim fundamentalist militia in northern Somalia with helicopter gunships, tanks and artillery over the weekend and vowed to continue its attacks against the "international terrorist group" it blames for a series of bombings and assassination attempts.
The invasion by troops in support of a Somali faction opposed to the al-Ittihad al-Islami (Islamic Union) left hundreds dead after two days of fighting in which three fundamentalist strongholds close to the Kenyan border were captured.
