Somali rebels give AK-47 to best young Koran reciter
Somali rebels give AK-47 to best young Koran reciter
KISMAYU, Somalia (Reuters) - The 17-year-old winner of a Koran recital and general knowledge competition organised by al Shabaab rebels in Southern Somalia got an AK-47 gun, two hand grenades, a computer and an anti-tank mine as prizes.

The runner-up in the month-long competition aimed at 10-25 year olds, a 22-year-old, received an AK-47 and ammunition at the ceremony, where the rebels urged parents to allow children to learn how to handle weapons and fight against the enemy.

Somalia's 18-year conflict now pits al Shabaab and Hizbul Islam rebels against the U.N.-backed government of President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed.

The radical al Shabaab, seen by Washington as al Qaeda's proxy, controls most of Southern and Central Somalia and has also been targeting Somali children in neighbouring Kenya for radicalisation and recruitment to their ranks.

Win an AK-47, 2 hand grenades, an anti-tank mine, and a computer!
That would just about do, as a "starter" kit for the new Brinks/Somalia Home Defense Package for folks in the 'burbs. If downtown, the kit is enhanced with a box of six Claymore mines and three 100rd ammo drums for the AK. :tongue:
