Smuggling cartels, militants hinder revival of Somali port

Play a game of word association almost anywhere in the world, and if you try the word "Nile", the answer will be "Egypt".

But upstream of Cairo, there's a country where the answer to the word association wouldn't be Egypt - where the people don't even call the river the Nile, and where more than 85 percent of the river's water originates. That place is Ethiopia, and it has enraged Egypt by starting to build a huge dam on the river.

The Ogaden National Liberation front on behalf of the Somali people in Ogaden send it deepest sympathies to the family of Nelson Mandela and the South African people.Nelson Mandela was a symbol of the triumph of justice and rights of peoples against all forms of oppression and tyranny. The Ogaden people, currently undergoing callous human rights violations understand what he fought against, stood for and had been subjected to. He showed the world the value of principled struggle against apartheid and the power of tolerance and forgiveness.

Ogaden- Lawlessness on the rise in Jijiga-ESAT News
The houses of civilians can be searched at any time by securities in Jijiga, Ogaden, Eastern Ethiopia. The securities do take the properties of civilians such as mobile phones, laptops and money. Those who do not carry local identity cards are held on suspicion. Residents of the town say, Jijiga has become a place of suffering to Ethiopians even worse than Saudi Arabia is.According to some sources the problem exacerbated and got complex after Al Shabab left warning text messages on the mobile phone of the regional president of the Ethiopia Somali region, Abdi Mohammed. The Group reportedly warned the Pesident that it would take action if the Nationalities Day is celebrated in the region this month. A man, who was suspected of having links with the Group, has been kidnapped and taken to the woodland where he was beaten to death by the securities. Securities later on paid 50 thousand birr to the deceased’s family as compensation. Another young lady has also reportedly been taken to the Central Prison and was raped there.

Somalia: 9 killed by car suicide bomber in northern Somalia
A police official says a suicide car bomber, targeting two pick-up trucks carrying Puntland Marine Forces in northern Somalia, has killed nine people and wounded 37 others.Saeed Abdi, a senior police officer in Somalia’s semi-autonomous region of Puntland, said Thursday that a woman and child were among those who were killed in the blast in the region’s commercial hub of Bossaso. No one has yet to claim responsibility for the attack but Abdi blames it on the al-Qaida-linked insurgent group al-Shabab. Al-Shabab is trying to expand its influence in northern Somalia after it was pushed out of its strongholds in southern Somalia last year by African Union and Ethiopian forces. AU and Ethiopian forces are bolstering Somalia’s weak western-backed government.
