    Somali Islamists say they will attack Kenya if it goes ahead with plans to train 10,000 government troops.
    "We will order all our holy warriors to start the jihadi war inside Kenya," said spokesman Sheikh Muktar Robow.
    Foreign Affairs Minister Moses Wetangula has been quoted recently offering the training to beleaguered government forces.
    The warning comes as insurgents have again battled government troops and peacekeepers in the capital, Mogadishu.
    At least five people have been killed, residents and doctors say.
    A witness told the BBC there were clashes near an African Union peacekeeping base at the strategic K-4 junction and that mortars were used.
    The Islamists have increasingly targeted the AU peacekeeping force in recent months, as well as the government and their Ethiopian allies.
