MH Emergency Relief Teams (from Sudan) arrived in Mogadishu on Monday 16th April, a day before the fighting escalated to the current levels. They have reported that:
"Heavy indiscriminate shelling is pounding the Somali capital Mogadishu almost continuously, as government troops attempt to wipe out the Islamist groups in the city.
"All those that have the means of fleeing have done so already or are doing so now, creating the largest mass exodus from Mogadishu since 1991.
