Somalia's prime minister resigns


Somalia's prime minister resigned following a power struggle with the country's president.

Omar Abdirashid Sharmarke had been under pressure to quit from Sheikh Sharif Ahmed, the country's president, and other government ministers, who have also been threatening to hold a vote of confidence.
