Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi has vowed to defeat militiamen who refused to disarm, saying they were "making things more difficult in Iraq".
His pledge came after deadly clashes between US troops and Shia militants in a Baghdad suburb and an attack on an oil pipeline in southern Iraq.

US forces also said on Sunday they had killed two Iraqi gunmen in separate incidents in northern Iraq, near Mosul.

"The government will not permit private armed groups to operate," he said.

"We will confront this with force... It seems that there are some elements in the Mehdi Army that insist on making things more difficult in Iraq outside of Najaf."
