The police commander of Somalia's capital Mogadishu on Monday prevented parliamentarians from gathering, saying he had done so to prevent any extension of the president's term.
"We have stopped the parliament session today," Commander Saadaq Omar Hassan said live on Universal Somalia TV. He was fired by the police commissioner moments later, a police statement said.
