Somaliland authorities ban flights to and from Djibouti


Flight connections to and from Djibouti have been banned by authorities in the neighbouring breakaway Republic of Somaliland for "security reasons", Radio Hargeisa reported Thursday.

Somaliland's Transport Assistant Minister Dahir Mohamed Osman said that the ban was in connection with flights to unauthorised airfields in Somaliland, according to the radio, monitored here.

Planes of Air Djibouti and Inter-Somalia, an airline owned by businessmen from Djibouti and Somaliland, are banned from flying to Somaliland.

Osman accused a Djibouti-owned airliner of landing in there without permission at the weekend, giving a fuel shortage as grounds.
