Somaliland reporter freed after three days

Abdirahman Musse Omar of the privately-owned television station SLTV was released on 1 July 2007 after appearing before a court in Hargeisa, the capital of the northern breakaway territory of Somaliland. The authorities are not pressing any charges against Omar, who was arrested on 28 June on the orders of Hargeisa's mayor, Hussein Mohamoud Ji'ir. Omar was reportedly trying to get the mayor's comments on deadly clashes which had taken place between police and residents in the area before being arrested. See related article here.
