Many of the roads of Somalia capital, Mogadishu were blocked on Saturday morning amid tough parliamentary debate on a fresh motion against the Prime Minister.

The main roads that link to the different parts of the town were blocked as heavy police presence were seen on Saturday morning.

According to Dalsan radio reporters, among the roads blocked and were not allowed to be accesses are the airport road, Makka al Mukarama, Sayidka and the road that crosses near the seat of the parliament.

There were no any comment from the police, but the move came as members of the Somali Federal Parliament begun to arrive the house of parliament to start a tough debate on the motion tabled last week against the cabinet and the Prime Minister.

The motion came amid serious rift between the President and the Prime Minister over resignation of the Prime Minister.
