Somali Cabinet Dissolved

Reuters reported that the cabinet of the interim (U.N.-backed) Somali government has been dissolved. Somalia is facing Islamist threat, with an Islamist takeover meaning the possible creation of another Taliban-like haven for terrorists.

BAIDOA, Somalia (Reuters) - Somalia's interim cabinet has been dissolved and a new one will be appointed within a week, President Abdullahi Yusuf said on Monday.

"The bloated cabinet of (Prime Minister) Ali Mohamed Gedi's government did not do anything during its tenure," Yusuf told parliament. "From today onwards, the government has been dissolved, only the prime minister will remain."
