Guinea-Bissau's President Vaz Sacks PM, Dissolves Government

Guinea-Bissau's President Jose Mario Vaz sacked Prime Minister Carlos Correia and dissolved his government on Thursday in a move that threatened to worsen political turmoil that has crippled the tiny West African nation.

Correia was appointed prime minister in October - becoming the third person in the post in the span of three months - in an attempt to end a crisis sparked by a row within the ruling PAIGC party.
