Video: Disabled die in Somali raid

Somalian disabled war veterans killed after stray mortar hits their hospital.

    Disabled veterans have become the latest casualty of fighting in the Somali capital of Mogadishu.

    At least 12 of 15 people killed were former soldiers suffering paralysis or missing limbs and many more were injured after mortars fired by Islamist fighters missed their target - and landed on their hospital.

    Al Jazeera's Rosie Garthwaite reports on the fighting that has already claimed tens of thousands of lives and shows no signs of abating.
