WARNING - Brits (at least) should leave Somaliland immediately
Posted January 27th, 2013 - 5:19 pm by from London, England (Permalink)
If you are a Westerner and are currently in Somaliland, then you should make plans to LEAVE immediately (in a safe manner). The UK Government is aware of a SPECIFIC threat to Westerners in Somaliland. They do not issue advice based on intelligence lightly, so please take this seriously.

If you are not a Westerner, then you would be well advised to take additional precautions.

Sorry to bring the bad news... A real shame, as Somaliland does not deserve this crap.
