Somalia: Puntland Allows UAE Aircraft to Depart Bosaso Airport After Standoff

Puntland security forces have allowed a UAE airplane to take-off from the airport of Bosaso, the commercial city of the northeastern Federal State on Saturday after a stand-off.

The aircraft was denied access to departing the airport during the standoff at Bosaso Airport that began after the Emirates refused to have their luggage scanned and searched.

The trainers who used to trained Puntland Maritime Police Force [PMPF] left Bosaso for UAE on Saturday following the seizure of $9.6 million at Mogadishu airport last Sunday.
