Somalia president resigns

The president of Somalia's transitional federal government has resigned, following a power struggle with parliament over the prime minister's post. With Islamist forces occupying much of the country and with Ethiopian occupation troops due to pull out this week, the move is triggering even more fear of chaos and instability. The speaker of parliament will become acting president until a new head of state is named.

I hear some of the Islamists are already starting to fight amongst themselves, before defeating the transitional government. Prospects aren't good.
