allAfrica.com: Somalia: Insurgent Splinter Group Frees Two Soldiers (Page 1 of 1): "A group of Somali militants fighting against the country's Ethiopian-backed transitional government released two soldiers today, saying that they do not want to kill Somalis.

A spokesman for the group, Jabhada Islamiga Somaliyeed (JIS), refused to give his name to Mogadishu-based media but stated that the two soldiers were kidnapped at Bakara market two days earlier.

The unidentified spokesman said the soldiers were released after the group spoke with their relatives and agreed that the soldiers will not return to the Somali army."
