Somaliland, a region of more than 3 million people strategically located by the Gulf of Aden, broke away from Somalia in 1991 as the country collapsed into warlord-led conflict.
On the other hand, there was a protest against the visit of the President of Somaliland, Muse Bihi Abdi, in some areas of Las Anod, who reject the secession of the region from greater Somalia.
