'Rambos' attack

Italy's Defence Minister, Fabio Fabbri, attacked 'Rambos' commanding UN peace-keeping forces in Somalia, after Rome said it would pull troops out of Mogadishu, Reuter reports from Rome.

Mr Fabbri told La Repubblica that Italy had 'never disagreed with the use of force in Somalia . . . The question we have raised concerns the reasons behind taking up arms. We don't like Rambos'.
