At least 10 people were killed Sunday when Somali government forces battled with Islamist militants around a Mogadishu market that was the scene of a similar clash last week.

Somali forces have been battling Al-Shabaab, the al Qaeda proxy in the country. The militants are waging a war against the government in an effort to implement a stricter form of Islamic law, or sharia.

Most of those killed were civilians, Muse said.
