In these news updates, I post all kinds of headlines and titles published on the Horn of Africa and on the Somali diaspora. Although Somaliland is politically distinct from neighboring countries, nevertheless there are many issues the entire Somali region as a whole shares due to ecology, culture and history. For example, Somaliland shares with Somalia and other neighbouring countries many challenges and issues, including recurring droughts, famine, militant terrorism, internally displaced refugees, climate change, charcoal use and its export which is now banned by the UN, human trafficking 'tahriib', illegal fishing, waste dumping and piracy, remittances 'hawallas', FGM and many others. After the initial posting, some of these links are available in the News archives.
