May 11, 2008|From Times Wire Reports

Dozens of suspected Islamic insurgents ambushed a military convoy transporting bodyguards for the interior and finance ministers, killing four soldiers, police said.

In Mogadishu, a gunfight between Islamic militias and Ethiopian troops left two civilians dead, witnesses said.

The two attacks capped a week of some of the worst violence in Somalia in recent months.

At least 38 people died in three days of attacks by suspected Islamic insurgents.
