Somalia's president to quit after 4 years in power

Somalia's president has told lawmakers he is resigning as the head of his country's U.N.-backed government.
Abdullahi Yusuf made the announcement in a speech Monday before parliament in Baidoa _ one of the only towns controlled by the weak government.
He said he would hand in his resignation letter later Monday after four years at the helm of the administration. The government has failed to bring security to the war-ravaged nation.
