Several hundred Ethiopian troops with military vehicles have crossed into Somalia’s southern and central part

Several hundred Ethiopian troops with military vehicles have crossed into Somalia’s southern and central part, news networks reported citing local elders.

BBC quoted eyewitnesses as saying there were at least 20 vehicles carrying Ethiopian troops.

The Ethiopian authorities dismissed the reports.

Ethiopian soldiers withdrew from Somalia in 2009 after a three-year presence.
