Somali reporter freed

Somaliland authorities have freed a newspaper reporter after seven days in detention.
Hargeisa - Reporters Without Borders has hailed the 19 July 2007 release of Abdirahman Mohammed Habane of Jamhuuriya, a daily based in Hargeisa, the capital of the breakaway state of Somaliland. He had been held since 12 July because of a controversial article about the swearing-in of a traditional leader.

He was freed after the Somaliland Journalists Association (SOLJA), Jamhuuriya's management and local human rights activists went to see the traditional leader concerned.
