Somalia's government said it was sealing the country's borders after neighboring Ethiopia launched an attack, Monday. Earlier Monday, Ethiopian fighter jets bombed Mogadishu International Airport in the middle of Somalia's capital Monday, in the first direct attack on the headquarters of an Islamic movement attempting to wrest power from the internationally-recognized government. Ethiopia's prime minister announced Sunday night that his country was "forced to enter a war" with Somalia's Council of Islamic Courts after the group declared holy war on Ethiopia. Major fighting broke out Tuesday night the previous week. On Sunday, Ethiopian forces fought alongside secular Somali soldiers in Dinsoor, Belet Weyne, Bandiradley and Bur Haqaba, officials said.
