Somalia: About 5,000 Sufi fighters join army
In central Somalia, about 5,000 Sufi fighters are signing up to join the national army.
In a surprise move two months ago, the group decided to have its fighters integrated.
So far, they are the only local group to go up against al-Shabaab fighters and win.
Sufism is a mystical branch of Islam and has been widely practised in Somalia before the advent of Salafism in the country following the civil war that broke out in 1991.
