MOGADISHU, Somalia (AP) — An Islamist insurgent-run radio station in Somalia says it is awarding guns, bombs and books to three children in a Quran recital contest.

Andulus radio station is run by the al-Qaida-linked al-Shabab militia.

The station announced Monday that the first prize winner in the contest received a rifle and $700, the second prize winner got a rifle and $500, and the third prize winner received two bombs.

All three children also received religious books.

Another group of religious radicals arming kids with weapons, *yawn.* But children's books, holy fuck! The possibilities!

Curtsies to Mother.
