UN offers reward for Aideed arrest
Thursday 24 June 1993
'Wanted' said the poster in Somali over a passable hand-drawn likeness of the man the United Nations holds responsible for the killing of 24 Pakistani peace-keeping troops on 5 June which plunged the capital back into violence.
The UN accuses him of masterminding the ambush in which the Pakistani soldiers died, and of holding large quantities of arms in contravention of peace agreements he signed under UN auspices.
Tunisian and American troops killed two Somalis when a Tunisian contingent came under fire at its compound in the Mogadishu university campus on Tuesday night.
The US Quick Reaction Force, posted to reinforce the 18,000-strong UN force in Somalia, sent helicopters to the scene and destroyed a 'technical' battle wagon. It was the first serious incident since last Thursday, when four Moroccan and one Pakistani peace-keepers were killed in street fighting.
The commander of Italian forces in Mogadishu said yesterday that US Marines had intruded in an area under Italian control and provoked protests by Somalis during which an Italian paratrooper was slightly hurt. General Bruno Loi said on GR1 state radio in Italy that the UN command had failed to warn him the Marines were entering his area.
