US aid to Somali military 'illegal'

US aid to Somali military 'illegal' 17 Jun 2010 A US lawmaker says Washington may be in violation of the law by providing military assistance to the Somali government, which employs children as soldiers. In a letter to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, he noted that such assistance might violate the Child Soldier Prevention provision of the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act of 2008, the New York Times reported. The warning came as the United States is engaged in providing the Somali military with millions of dollars in arms and also pays the salaries of its soldiers.
