There was no fighting in the Somali Presidential Palace and None Died As a Result of the Purported Attack
(Mogadishu, Somalia, May 25, 2010) A false report claiming that there was an attack in Villa Somalia where a dozen people were killed has been widely disseminated in the past two days.
There was no fighting or mortars landing at the Presidency and nobody died as a result.
We therefore caution respectable media to verify what they report as news and share with their audience before carrying far and wide, fabricated news that never happened.
As for the oppositionâ€™s erroneous claim that they will attack and capture the Presidency that too is a pure fantasy and wonâ€™t happen, because they have been repeating the same stuff since January 2009.
