MOGADISHU (Sunatimes)- Somalia�s prime minister Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke says that could not be the only solution for the current appalling situations in country, as his government controls few blocks in the war-scarred capital.

 "I believe that we can defeat opposition insurgents using methods other than military." He said in a brief report for media at the presidential house on Monday.

He reiterated there were many clan militias in the government forces, making it difficult to defeat the insurgent groups.

�The militia in our troops need the first arrangements, then we can obliterate the extremists� He said.

He stressed the need for the government to gain the confidence of its people.

"Most of the religious scholars have joined their people [clans], but we, the government, have plans to influence the people to work with the government towards restoring peace in country", Sharmake noted.

Somalia�s government controls just few killometers unline Al-qaeda linked militants control swathes of south and central Somalia.
