Islamic militants who control of much of southern Somalia said Tuesday they will open training camps for Somali students to prepare them for a holy war against any foreign peacekeepers sent here. "There is nothing wrong with our plan to train students," said Islamic official Fuad Mohammed Kalaf. "There are a lot of countries in the world that carry out such exercises." The militants oppose foreign interference in Somalia, while the country's virtually powerless official government has appealed for outside help to pacify this chaotic Horn of Africa nation.
