FIVE madrassas in Uganda have been shut down over allegations they are training students to become extremists, a Ugandan police official said yesterday. A Muslim leader denied the allegations.

The Islamic schools targeted for closure have been training children to become fighters in a rebel group opposed to Uganda’s government, Patrick Onyango, a spokesman for police in the Ugandan capital of Kampala, told The Associated Press.

“They are brainwashing the children, training them to become recruits in a rebel group,” he said.

“The plan is that when they reach the right age they will be taken to become rebels.” He said three of the schools ordered shut are located in Uganda’s central region while two of them are in the east.
