MOGADISHU, Somalia Mar 28 - Et hiopian soldiers patrolling a busy street in the Somali capital came under grenade attack on Friday, and the soldiers responded with violent force, witnesses said.

At least three civilians, including a man in his 60s, were killed in the panic following the grenade explosion.

The soldiers opened fire on a public transportation bus driving by the intersection, wounding a total of nine people on board, according to witnesses.

Medical sources at Daynile Hospital in Mogadishu confirmed to Garowe Online that two of the nine wounded civilians died at the hospital.

The driver of the bus said the soldiers detained a male passenger, adding that he had "no idea" where they took the young man.

Somali and Ethiopian government troops serving in Mogadishu are targeted by suspected insurgents on a near-daily basis.

Often, innocent civilians are caught in the crossfire between the two sides.

The United Nations estimates that 1 million Somalis have been displaced by war, creating what aid officials consider Africa's worst humanitarian crisis.
