The 40 tonnes of weapons and ammunition which the US has given the Somali government will only increase violence, according to some Somalis.

Over the last six months supporters of an Islamic based judiciary system and  US funded warlords have been fighting for control of the capital and southern Somalia.

Somalia has been facing ongoing political instability after a violent overthrow of Dictator Muhammad Siyad Barre in 1992.
