DAR ES SALAAM - Somalia's President Sheikh Sharif Ahmed promised on Wednesday to rid the country of the Islamist militants who are fighting to overthrow his administration and blocking food aid to millions of people facing starvation.

Ahmed was speaking four days after al Shabaab pulled most of its forces out of the Somali capital amid signs of deepening rifts among its senior commanders.

"As long as they are in Somali territory, even an inch, I will not rest," Ahmed told a news conference after meeting Tanzanian President Jakaya Kikwete in Dar es Salaam. "Our determination is to clear them out," he said.
