Somalia security tightened as parliament prepares to censure speaker

Somlia president Farmajo is locked in a power struggle with the parliamentary speaker

There is tight security in the Somali capital, Mogadishu, ahead of an expected no confidence motion against the speaker of parliament.

Many roads are closed and the parliament building has been surrounded by the security forces.

The speaker, Mohamed Osman Jawari, says President Mohamed Farmajo has asked him to resign, but he is refusing to do so.

Mr Jawari is being accused of abusing power and blocking constitutional reforms.
