|Ethiopian army troops with armoured vehicles and trucks enter in Somalia.|
Residents say a large number of Ethiopian troops have crossed into neighbouring Somalia, just weeks after Kenyan forces entered the country to pursue al-Shabab fighters. "The Ethiopian troops, which are in convoys of armoured vehicles, come to us today, crossing from Balanbale district on the border," Gabobe Adan, an elder in the central town of Guriel told Reuters.
Ethiopian soldiers stand guard at their base in Somalia's capital Mogadishu, January 13, 2009.
"They were in about 28 trucks and armed battle wagons - the armed vehicles are very big."
