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 the nation. Last month, authorities from seven African countries endorsed a plan to send about 3,500 Ugandan and Sudanese soldiers to Somalia by early October, but the agreement is unlikely to become reality anytime soon.
