Addis Ababa — Somalia's Interim Prime Minister Ali Mohamed Gedi said yesterday the international community should come to the aid since his government is handicapped and doesn't have the capacity to fight what he termed as 'the terrorists', SomaliNet reported from Mogadishu.

He made the statement in a news conference held yesterday in his partly destroyed compound in north of the capital.
