Somalia peacekeepers 'not viable'

(Waridaad) - The idea of deploying UN peacekeeping troops to Somalia is "neither realistic nor viable", the UN head has said.
Ban Ki-Moon said that because of the security situation, it had not even been possible to send a technical assessment team to Somalia.

His comments come as more than 50 people died in battles in the capital.
A BBC correspondent says Ethiopian forces are engaged in reprisal attacks after two soldiers' bodies were dragged through the streets on Thursday.
