Radical Islamists have regrouped after being driven from power last year and are poised to launch a massive attack against the Somali government, an official said Thursday. The government has "no power to resist the Islamists" and is failing to control most of the country, said Sheik Qasim Ibrahim Nur, director of security at the National Security Ministry. "About 80 percent of Somalia is not safe and is not under the control of the government," Nur told The Associated Press in an exclusive interview. "Islamists are planning to launch a massive attack against the (government) and its allied troops."
