Al-Shabaab Start Arriving In Somaliland

Hargeysa, Somaliland, July 23, 2011 (SL Times) The recent blows inflicted on al-Shabaab by American drones in Kismayo and AMISOM forces in Mogadishu, have led some al-Shabaab members to flee southern Somalia and re-locate to their place of origin.
As a result, some al-Shabaab members who are originally from Somaliland have come back to Somaliland.
Eyewitnesses have confirmed this to be the case in several parts of Somaliland, including the capital, Hargeysa.
Among al-Shabaab members who were seen in Somaliland was the deputy chairman in charge of the collection of zakat charities, who is originally from Togdheer, but was said to have been in Hargeysa a few days ago.
The government has not made any public comments on the issue.
