At least three people, including a policeman, were killed and three others wounded in two explosions in the Somali capital on Thursday, witnesses said, as the fragile government announced a massive operation to stamp out a deadly insurgency. Unidentified assailants hurled a hand grenade at a joint Somali-Ethiopia patrol in south Mogadishu and killed a soldier, said a resident, Ismail Ibrahim Ali, adding that soldiers arrested dozens of civilians from his district after the blast. Ethiopian soldiers have been bolstering Somalia's weak government since last year. "I saw a dead Somali soldier lying on the ground," Ali said. "We ran from the scene when we saw them arresting people."
