Militiamen loyal to Gen Muhammad Sa'id Hirsi (Morgan), who have been undergoing

military training in Waajid District, Bakool Region [southwestern Somalia], yesterday

conducted massive military exercises in the area. Ethiopian military instructors have

been training the militia for the past several months. Gen Morgan and his militiamen

were driven out of Kismaayo town, Jubbada Hoose Region [southern Somalia] about

a year ago [by pro-Husayn Muhammad Aydid forces]. They are believed to be preparing

to recapture Kismaayo.
