Somalia's interim government has begun imposing martial law, the prime minister said, saying that remnants of an ousted Islamic movement have returned to some areas and were planning to try to further destabilize an already lawless country. A curfew was imposed Tuesday night on the southern Somalia town of Baidoa under a three-month emergency law that was announced on Jan. 13 but not implemented then. "From now on martial law would be implemented across government-controlled areas, starting with Baidoa tonight," Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi told government-controlled radio late Tuesday.
