MANAGUA, April 27 (Xinhuanet) -- The Islamic terror organization al-Qaida
could be training several Honduran citizens who have converted to Islam to
recruit them into their militia, Honduran Security Minister Oscar Alvarez said
At a press conference in the capital Tegucigalpa, Alvarez
said several Honduran citizens who study at local mosques received scholarships
to travel to Middle East countries to study Islam, but they might be trained to
join the terror group.
"We are investigating because we do not want these people to later return
brainwashed and carry out terror acts in our country," he added.
The minister said the probes were jointly conducted by the Honduran
Security Ministry and the General Attorney's Office Against Organized Crime.
