Between forces of the United States, and Somali militiamen
who had support from armed civilian fighters.

consisting of U.S. Army Rangers, “Delta Force”; as well as Air Force Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen and helicopters from Special Operations Aviation Regiment, attempted to seize two lieutenants during a meeting in the city.

The battle resulted in 18 deaths, 73 wounded, and one helicopter pilot captured among the U.S. raid party and rescue forces.
At least one Pakistani soldier and one Malaysian soldier
were killed as part of the rescue forces.
