MOGADISHU - A disgruntled former employee of the German aid agency GTZ deployed 50 heavily armed men and looted their office in southern Somalia, a GTZ official confirmed Monday in Nairobi.

"They looted 24,000 US dollars but no one was injured in the incident," he said.

The Somali administrator, Mohammed Bulle was recently dismissed "because he behaved more and more like a mini warlord."

Bulle is a relative of the Minister for Justice of the transitional government based in Jowhar and Mogadishu.

"He will probably consider the 24,000 dollars as his golden handshake," the GTZ official told Deutsche Presse-Agentur dpa.

Meanwhile, calm has returned to the southern town of Hudur but it is not known where Bulle and the militiamen are currently located.
