SOMALIA: Protests in north

Meanwhile, thousands of people in Somaliland denounced the new president as a relic of the past, serving as a stiff reminder to the Djibouti government of the challenge that lay ahead, news reports said on Friday.

In Hargeisa, capital of Somaliland, protesters burned Somali and Djibouti flags while many held placards reading: "No more unity", or "Down with Djibouti" Similar demonstrations were reported in the port of Berbera on Wednesday.

Somaliland, a former British protectorate, has enjoyed relative stability compared with other parts of Somalia, which dissolved into clan-based civil war and anarchy after the 1991 overthrow of Muhammad Siyad Barreh.
