Hundreds of people including men, women and children marched through major streets of Guriel town to demonstrate against Ethiopia’s Liyu Police which raided on nomads in small villages in central Somalia’s Galgadud region.

The protest, which was organized by civil society, has been held in Guriel town in central Somalia after Ethiopia’s Liyu Police killed over 50 people including women and children in clashes near Somalia-Ethiopia border.

Freelance journalist, Bashir Abdi told Media in Mogadishu that protesters were chanting anti Ethiopia’s Liyu Police slogans as well carrying placards written: ‘’ The enemy should leave our territories ’’.

The big rally comes days after Ethiopia’s Liyu police clashed with pastoralists in small villages near Somalia-Ethiopia, killing more than 50 people including women and children while wounds brought into hospitals in Mogadishu.
