Al Jazeera, 30 Apr 2021
Somalia's president has backed down from extending his term by two years.

Mohamed Abdullahi Farmaajo has called for preparations to hold delayed elections.

Rival factions have been fighting in the capital, Mogadishu, and Al Shabab is seizing the opportunity to extend its grip.

Could the political instability spark a new conflict?
