Somali president appoints prime minister

Somalia's new president has named a prime minister as the nation sets up an effective central government following decades of civil war.

Abdi Farah Shirdon, an economist who ran an import business in neighboring Kenya, was named prime minister Saturday.

President Hassan Sheikh Mohamud, a political newcomer who has worked for several international organizations, assumed leadership last month.

"The appointment of a new prime minister is another important step forward in the country's peace building process," said Augustine P. Mahiga, the top U.N. envoy to the nation.
