Somali says Ethiopia's withdrawal completed
The Somali government said Ethiopia had completed its military withdrawal.
The Somali government said on Monday Ethiopia had completed its military withdrawal after a more than two-year intervention against an Islamist movement.
The last Ethiopian troops in Somalia pulled out of the provincial town of Baidoa, which houses parliament, on Sunday night and crossed the border on Monday morning, government spokesman Abdi Haji Gobdon told Reuters.
"The Ethiopians have fulfilled their promise. Their last troops crossed the border this morning," he said.
