Some Swedish-Somali youths are taking part in that African country's civil war - now the Somali Justice Minister is visiting in order to discuss how to stop fighters travelling to Somalia from Sweden.

According to minister Abdirahman Janaqoo he is certain that almost ten people from Sweden have gone to fight in Somalia. Some are already dead, and others are prepared to fight to the death against his government.
