Somalia in deadlock over Jubaland

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

    Somalia's central government and the leaders of one of the country's regions are locked in a power struggle that could turn violent.

    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.
