Norwegian and Norwegian officials to hold independence day in Somaliland

Oslo, Norway (AP) Norwegian and Somali leaders will hold independence days in Somali independence days on Nov. 25 and 26 in the capital, Mogadishu.

President Mohamed Abdullahi Mohamed told a crowd in Mogadishuk on Monday that the two nations are “close friends” and have an “unfortunate history.”

He said Somalis “will have a full, fair, peaceful, democratic, and just Somalia.”

Somalis have been fighting an eight-year war since their independence from Ethiopia in 1991.

They have faced a decades-long conflict that has killed more than 200,000 people and displaced tens of millions.
