Somali Prime Minister: War in Horn Of Africa inevitable

AP report via SudanTribune - excerpt:
Dec 5, 2006 (ADDIS ABABA) -- Somalia's prime minister told The AP war in the Horn of Africa is unavoidable because radicals control the Islamic movement that in recent months has taken over much of his country.

Somali Prime Minister Ali Gedi indicated war was imminent, but said his government will continue to take part in all peace efforts. In the interview late Monday, he added his government was preparing to defend itself against attacks by the Council of Islamic Courts, as the movement that has taken over most of southern Somalia is known.
