BREAKING NEWS.- Conclusion of the
fighting in and  around the village of Dhuuda

December 31 2002


There was a heavy fighting yesterday, December 30,
2002 in and around the village of Dhuuda 160 KMs
to the south of Qardho. This was started by
anti-puntland rebels to break through the siege of
Puntland forces. This resulted in the surrender of 185
rebels militia and capture of almost all their
military hardware. Only two Technicals fled to the
eastern coast area of the country. They are being
chased and will be likely captured shortly.

Details of casualties in life are still inconclusive.

The new development will hopefully closes a chapter in
Puntland stability as rebels have been soundly crushed
and law and order fully restored throughout Puntland
State of Somalia.

In another unrelated development, the Parliament of
the State of Puntland will convene in the Capital City
of Garowe shortly in an ordinary session of the House
as the entire Executive Branch of the Government has
moved back to Garowe.

The President of State will attend this opening
session of the House.
