Somalia Hits Back, Bars Officials From Nairobi Meetings

The Somali government has avenged the 'embarassment' of its three senior Somali officials that were refused entry visas in Nairobi while travelling to attend the EU-sponsored cross-border conflict management programme in Nairobi, despite holding diplomatic passports. The Somali government has also given non-governmental organisations operating in Somalia one month's notice to relocate their centres to Mogadishu or be barred from operating there.
