Somali students take to the streets, demanding that AMISOM stops using civilian districts and universities as military bases in Mogadishu.

Thousands of student activists on Thursday began rioting in the Hodon district of the Somali capital, calling for the reopening of roads closed by AMISOM so that people could return to their homes.

In the north of Mogadishu, nearly 25 thousand people including teachers and the elderly shouted "Do not force us to join the armed groups", Press TV's Somali correspondent reported.

In a Thursday press conference, Deputy Mayor of Mogadishu Abdi Fadti Sabriye Shaaweye condemned World Food Program (WFP) officers, accusing them of storing provisions instead of distributing them and of neglecting Mogadishu residents on the verge of starvation.
