Somalia's prime minister, who has been at odds with the president for months, on Saturday lost a vote of confidence in parliament, amid warnings that the power struggles and political turmoil could damage efforts to rebuild the war-torn nation.
Abdiweli Sheikh Ahmed received support from only 80 lawmakers, while 153 backed a motion to oust him. Ahmed has for months been at loggerheads with President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, prompting international backers to warn that the infighting was putting at risk the fragile gains made in the war-scarred nation and with the Al-Qaeda-affiliated Shebab rebels still carrying out regular attacks.
