SOMALIA: President begins recruiting police for Mogadishu

A committee appointed by Somalia's new Interim President Abdulkassim Salad Hassan on Saturday began interviewing militiamen interested in serving in a new 4,000-strong police force for the country's capital.

AFP reported that approximately 3,000 armed men, mostly gunmen owing allegiance to Somalia's numerous clans and militiamen loyal to Mogadishu's Islamic courts, gathered at Herada Maslah on the southern outskirts of Mogadishu hoping to be recruited into the police force.

About 1,000 posts had been reserved for those who served in a police unit established by the UN peacekeeping force in Somalia between 1992 and 1995, the report said.
