    The political deadlock in Papua New Guinea rumbles on to its sixth day, with two men claiming to be the legitimate Prime Minister.

    Governor-General Michael Ogio reinstated 76-year-old Michael Somare as prime minister on Monday after the court ruled that his removal from office by Peter O'Neill in a parliamentary vote in August while he was getting medical treatment outside the country was unconstitutional.

    As Al Jazeera's Andrew Thomas reports from Tubusereia, there is no sign yet of anything to break the deadlock.
