Ethiopia Bombs Two of Somalia's Airports

Early Monday, Ethiopian warplanes bombed two airports in Somalia, striking at the heart of territory controlled by the Islamic Courts Union. It's the second day of Ethiopian airstrikes against the Islamist movement that is now fighting for control of Somalia.

Ethiopia, which shares a long border with Somalia, backs Somalia's internationally recognized transitional government.
