These protests are continuing and are often spontaneous. Even recent football matches have turned into mass protests, with fans chanting: "The people will topple the regime...Leave, leave Rouhani (the Iranian president)...This land has lions, no one can come near it."
...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"
