MOGADISHU, Dec 26 (Reuters) - Somali Islamists warned Ethiopian troops advancing on the capital on Tuesday that any attempt to seize their Mogadishu stronghold would end in disaster for the attackers. "It will be their destruction and doomsday," Islamist spokesman Abdi Kafi told Reuters. "It is a matter of time before we start striking at them from all directions".
