PM loses vote of no confidence

MOGADISHU:

Somalia's parliament yesterday voted to sack Prime Minister Abdi Farah Shirdon, after a row with the president that has paralysed the state and threatened a shaky recovery from war. The prime minister, who was appointed last year, fell out with President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud over what legislators said was a dispute over the composition of a new cabinet, prompting the vote.
