Mogadishu (Mareeg) — Forces of the Somali Transitional Federal Government in Ex-control Afgoe junction told the media that they have held a military truck carrying weapons to the Islamist insurgents in the outskirts of the capital Mogadishu, an officer said.

The government soldiers have seized a very big military vehicle at the first checkpoint (Exit and Entrance) of the capital Mogadishu yesterday afternoon, a government officer named Ahmed Yare said.

Weapons include AK47 guns, ammunitions of artillery weapons and explosive elements, Ahmed Yare said adding that there were men with the truck who are captured including a government soldier and were all arrested saying that they will investigate the case.
