TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) -- Seventy foreign military officers are planning to tour the Kansas Statehouse as part of a program about state government and the state's court system.

The officers scheduled to visit Topeka on Thursday are students at the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College at Fort Leavenworth. Students at the 119-year-old college frequently become high-ranking military officers or civilian officials in their nations, and 26 graduates have become heads of state.

The 65 nations represented this year include Afghanistan, Brazil, Egypt, Kenya, Korea, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Spain, and Uganda.

Secretary of State Kris Kobach is scheduled to speak to the officers before their tour of the Statehouse. They also plan tour the nearby Judicial Center and the Kansas Museum of History.
