Quotes

...Simmonds had this to say, "We take the travel advisory we provide very seriously indeed and the travel advice is provided for the benefit of United Kingdom citizens but it has been clear for some time that there is some anxiety in the Somaliland government about the overarching travel advisory that has been provided for the whole of what we perceive as Somalia. What we informed President Silanyo and his Ministers this morning is that we have undertaken comprehensive analysis looking at the facts, this is not a political decision, it is a factual decision, and we are downgrading our travel advice to Hargeisa and Berbera Specifically and we are making that very clear in our advisory when it is reposted either today or tomorrow, meaning that we, the UK, sees Hargeisa and Berbera as safer than the rest of Somaliland and Somalia"
"They were afraid of trouble, so they just called in the riot police from Heshigten and detained eight people" a local herder who declined to be identified said
"What is happening is that candidates are fighting a war over Kirkuk's identity through this election. They are pulling out all the stops to win votes and to prove whether Kirkuk is a Kurdish, Arab or Turkmen city. Wise heads need to stop these conflicts from getting worse" he warns
...He said, "We do not have any credible issues that would justify concern for the Russian-speaking population of Ukraine."
