MOGADISHU: Somali lawmakers voted to oust the prime minister Monday amid furious power struggles among top leaders that could undermine efforts to rebuild the war-torn nation and tackle Islamist insurgents.

"The motion has passed," said speaker Mohamed Osman Jawari, noting that 184 out of 249 lawmakers in parliament voted to sack Abdi Farah Shirdon, prime minister of the Horn of Africa nation for just over a year.
