Fighting in Somalia's capital killed at least 10 people early Sunday in a barrage of heavy weapons fire, according to witnesses and a government official. The fighting - a common sight in this war-ravaged country - broke out a day after Somali pirates freed a Spanish fishing boat and its 26-member crew after receiving a ransom of US$1.2 million (€770,000), a Somali official said. "They used all kinds of weapons, machine guns and RPGS (rocket-propelled grenades) and mortars," said Daud Muhidin Salad, a resident who saw several bodies. The government official, who asked that his name not be used because he is not authorized to speak publicly, said 10 people were killed.
