Heavy fighting on Friday again stalled efforts to rescue foreigners trapped in Somalia's capital, officials said. Italy said it will close its diplomatic mission in Mogadishu, the capital, as soon as foreigners taking shelter there could be evacuated. Friday's fighting forced two Italian military planes sent to rescue 50 Italians and about 40 others in the embassy to return empty to the Kenyan coastal city of Mombasa.
