Five Indian nationals, apparently caught in fighting between the Somali government and rebels, reportedly were killed as the United Nations completed the evacuation of foreigners from the northern town of Hargeisa. Diplomatic sources, contacted by telephone from Nairobi, said 20 to 30 Americans were among the 165 people flown out of the embattled town 700 miles north of the East African nation's capital, Mogadishu.

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.

The United Nations on Friday began airlifting 160 foreigners, including about 20 Americans, out of northern Somalia's main city, Hargeisa, which rebels reported they overran this week. Three light aircraft ferried 83 people from Hargeisa to the nearby town of Garowe before the operation stopped because of a curfew, according to the British High Commission in Mogadishu. The airlift, coordinated by the U.N. Development Program, was to resume today.
