Boys all over the world love to play soldier. There's a great fascination with uniforms and weapons. Every culture has a history of war and it's reflected in toys and games.

A lot of kids would consider themselves lucky to get a new Red Ryder BB gun.

Others consider themselves lucky to have any weapon at all.

But what kid wouldn't love to have his own shiny new AK-47?

In celebration of Ramadan, al-Shabab, an Islamist group in Somalia, held a contest for boys age 10-17. The competition included quizzes on Koran and general knowledge.

Andulus radio, near Mogadishu, ran the contest and awarded the prizes. First prize was an AK-47 and $ 700. The second prize winner also received an AK-47 and $ 500.

Third prize was two hand grenades and $ 375.

This is the third year for the competition. Last year's first prize was a rocket-propelled grenade launcher.

"Youths should use one hand for education and the other for a gun to defend Islam," al-Shabab representative Mukhtar Robow said at the prize-giving ceremony.
