SOMALIA: Puntland suspends VOA reporter
LAS ANOD (Somalilandpress) — Somalia’s northern semi-autonomous region of Puntland has suspended VOA correspondent Nuh Muse Birjeb in Garowe on Tuesday.
Mr Birjeb told local reporters he received a decree banning him from reporting in the region from the Puntland Minister of Information Mr Yassin Adan Roble.
He added the authority in the semi-autonomous region did not explain the reason behind their action against VOA.
This is not the first time Puntland has suspended VOA Somali services from it’s territory. In late 2009, it suspended Nuh Muse in Garowe, Mohamed Yasin Isak in Galkayo and Abdulkadir Mohamed in Bossasso.
