  8. MOGADISHU, Somalia — Fierce fighting between Ethiopian-backed government forces and Islamic insurgents in Somalia's capital has killed nearly 400 people — mostly civilians — in the past four days, a Somali human rights group said Monday. The fighting abated long enough Monday to allow thousands of people to flee the ruined coastal city on foot and in donkey carts, cars and trucks. Some 47,000 people — mainly women and children — have abandoned their homes in the last 10 days, according to the U.N. refugee agency. Since February, nearly 100,000 people have fled the violence, the agency said. Monday's lull appeared to follow a truce between Ethiopian forces and insurgents, brokered by the capital's dominant clan. But Deputy Defense Minister Salad Ali Jelle said the accord was "null and void," and warned residents to go because the fighting could resume at any time to "clean al-Qaida elements from Mogadishu." Ethiopian troops were seen reinforcing close to insurgent strongholds in the southern part of the city. Around 4,000 Ethiopian troops are in Mogadishu, said Western diplomats who spoke on condition of anonymity because the information related to security matters. The casualty figures were the first to be compiled since the battles began Thursday, said Sudan Ali Ahmed, chairman of the Elman Human Rights Organization. The group said 381 people were killed and 565 were wounded in the fighting, which started when Ethiopian troops with tanks and attack helicopters launched an offensive to crush insurgents linked to an Islamic group driven from power in December. The tolls were calculated from hospital figures, local groups and burials but do not include Ethiopian soldiers that may have been killed, he said. The numbers may be much higher as bodies have not been collected from the dusty alleyways and backstreets in the south of the capital. The U.N. Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs in Somalia said many of the wounded still need help. "Trapped by the fighting, many wounded are unable to access medical facilities and lie unattended in the streets," the agency said. Ethiopia claims it has killed more than 200 insurgents during the offensive; the figure could not be independently confirmed. On Monday, Gen. Abdullahi Ali Omar, the commander of Somalia's army, narrowly escaped a roadside bombing as he drove in a government convoy from his hotel, a clear sign the insurgency is still strong. One soldier was injured in the blast, said presidential spokesman Hussein Mohamoud Hussein. "An al-Qaida cell was behind the explosion," he said. "They want to kill key government officials. They want to do here what they are doing in Iraq." International efforts were under way to resolve the crisis, with European, African, Arab and U.S. diplomats expected to meet in Cairo on Tuesday. In Eritrea, Ugandan President Yoweri Museveni was holding talks on the fighting with Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki. Eritrea is accused of backing the Islamic movement that was driven from power in December by its rival, Ethiopia, along with U.S. special forces. The U.S. has accused the courts of having ties to al-Qaida. On Saturday, a Ugandan member of the African Union peacekeeping force in Somalia was killed by a mortar. Uganda has about 1,400 troops in the force, the only contributing country so far. The Islamic movement stockpiled thousands of tons of weapons and ammunition during the six months they controlled Mogadishu. The militants have long rejected any secular government and have sworn to fight until Somalia becomes an Islamic emirate. The country has been mired in chaos since 1991, when warlords overthrew dictator Mohamed Siad Barre and then turned each other. A national government was established in 2004, but has failed to assert any real control. Source

Ethiopia -Beyond stillbirth, shame: Women with a fistula 30 Mar 2007 07:00:05 GMT Source: Reuters By Elana Ringler BAHIR DAR, Ethiopia, March 30 (Reuters) - Thirty-year-old Alem wears two small bags of perfumed soap around her neck to mask the stench of urine and faeces that has accompanied her for 10 years since she suffered a fistula. The childbirth injury almost unheard of in the developed world still afflicts as many as two million women in the developing world. Obstetric fistula is caused by prolonged labour which forces the unborn baby's head against a woman's pelvis -- killing the baby and destroying the trapped tissue in the birth canal, the rectum and the urinary tract. Alem, whose name doctors have changed to preserve her anonymity, says the smell caused her husband to divorce her and her family to shun her. Standing outside a specialist clinic in the impoverished northern Ethiopian town of Bahir Dar, Alem recalls the traumatic labour which killed her baby and wrecked her bladder and her rectum. "I tried to cure myself in holy water but my body was already swollen and the baby had already died," she says. For the sufferer, the grief of coming to terms with a still-born child is compounded by the misery of losing control of bodily functions. "They can't hold any urine in themselves, so they smell, they're ashamed, usually the husbands divorce them, the families reject them and they live a life of poverty and misery and being an outcast for the rest of their lives," said Dr Andrew Browning, an Australian gynaecologist who has been working at the fistula clinic here for two years. The condition was almost totally eradicated by western medicine with the advent in the 18th century of the Caesarean or C-section -- a surgical procedure to remove the baby and shorten labour. FOUR-DAY LABOUR Today, a woman in the developed world will go through an average of 12 hours of labour compared with almost four days of labour which is the average in Ethiopia, according to Browning. Fistula is particularly prevalent among malnourished women. Ethiopia, one of the world's poorest countries, has 200,000 women currently suffering the condition with an estimated 9,000 new cases every year. Treatment is available to repair the damage done by a fistula -- it is successful in more than 97 percent of cases, says Browning. At $300 for the operation it seems inexpensive by western medical standards but that is a fortune in Ethiopia. The clinic here, and the Addis Ababa Fistula Hospital in the capital, 500 km to the south, rely on donations to operate. American television host Oprah Winfrey is a high-profile supporter of the clinics and the United Nations has launched an 'End Fistula' campaign with the goal of eradicating the condition by 2015. But Browning worries the condition does not have the 'donor appeal' of diseases like HIV/AIDS and malaria that have attracted pledges of billions of dollars from charities and western philanthropists like Microsoft chief Bill Gates.
