MOGADISHU, (Horn Observer) Thousands of residents on Wednesday took to the street in the Somali capital Mogadishu in support of the Federal Government of Somalia recent decision to handover the ONLF rebel commander to Ethiopia.

The protestors who were chanting, "Doolar Qaate Dooni meyno” marched through the streets of Mogadishu and finally gathered the monument of the unknown soldier.  However, the protestors who who were in support of the government were dispersed by the Somali security forces.

"We came out to show our support to the government,” Ms. Nimco Ali, one of the protestors said, "But we are being intimidated”

The protests coincides with parliament’s session debating if the extradition of Qalbi was inline with the Federal constitution.


Somali cabinet recently decided in an emergency meeting that the ONLF rebel leader Abdihakim Sheikh Muse aka Qalbi Dhagah, extradited to Ethiopia, was a terrorist and member of a terrorist organization. Thus, labeling the ONLF as a terrorist organization.
