  MOGADISHU, Dec 10 (Reuters) - The death toll from fighting in Somalia has
reached 16,210 since the start of last year, a local human rights group said
on Wednesday.

The Mogadishu-based Elman Peace and Human Rights Organisation has been
tracking the casualties since Islamist insurgents launched a rebellion
against the U.N.-backed interim government and its Ethiopian military allies
early in 2007.

Elman said 7,574 civilians had been killed so far in 2008, adding to 8,636
killed the year before. In a report, it said nearly 29,000 people had been
wounded over that two-year period. (Editing by Charles Dick)
