Mutiny erupts in Puntland as Eritrea-trained troops protest unpaid salaries

Wednesday February 7, 2024

Bosaso (HOL) - A group of Eritrea-trained Somali troops in the northeastern semiautonomous state of Puntland staged a mutiny on Wednesday over unpaid salaries, an official said.

The angry troops took control of the entrance to the airport in Bosaso, where they imposed a curfew on people's movement.


These troops, who hail from Puntland, returned to Garowe and Bosaso towns a few months ago after completing their training in Eritrea. They then joined the Puntland marine forces, which the UAE government supports.

The mutiny coincided with an explosion in Bosaso today. According to reports, an officer of the Puntland army, along with his bodyguards and civilians, were injured.

Located on the southern coast of the Gulf of Aden, Bosaso is also a commercial port city of the semiautonomous state, 1,414 kilometers (878 miles) northeast of the capital Mogadishu.
