    Guled told reporters on Wednesday he was resigning in an effort to end the infighting among Hussein's and Yusuf's factions in the government.

    "After evaluating the current situation in Somalia, I have decided to resign," Guled told reporters at his house.
       
    "I stood down so that I am not seen as a stumbling block to the peace process which is going on well now."
