Somalia in deadlock over Jubaland

Jubaland threatens to cut ties with central government as Mogadishu rejects declaration of statehood.

    The dispute centres on Jubaland - an area in the southern-most part of Somalia that has claimed statehood and elected a president.

    As the standoff escalates, Jubaland authorities are threatening to cut all ties with Mogadishu.
