A fighter from al-Shabab runs for cover, away from a burnt-out African Union (AU) military tank during battle in Somalia's capital Mogadishu July 2, 2010. At least 21 people were killed and 42 wounded in fighting in Somalia, a human rights group said on Thursday. Government troops alongside African Union peacekeepers exchanged shells in Mogadishu with al Qaeda-linked al-Shabab rebels, who are waging an Islamist insurgency against the Western-backed government. Seven people were killed and 18 wounded.
