Somaliland elders never tire and retire

By Mohamed Abdi Farah

Asmara, Eritrea January 11, 2008 - The leader of the Asmara based opposition groups, Sheikh Sharif Sheik Ahmed said on Friday that they received information telling that the two detained elders who were members of the Hawiye Traditional Council were killed in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

Speaking to the Somali section of Voice of America based in Washington, USA, Sheik Ahmed said according to the information, the spokesman for the Council of Hawiye clan elders Ahmed Dirie Ali and Sheikh Ahmed Geesey who was also member of the Council were executed by the Ethiopian government.

"What we have heard so far that these two elders were killed in jail they were held inside Addis Ababa," said Sheik Ahmed.
In other words, Sheik Sharif Sheik Ahmed called for the Young Islamic Movement known as 'Al-Shabab' to give up the rift with the Coalition in Asmara and show solidarity to end the Ethiopian occupation in Somalia.

"it is fact that some of Al-Shabab group had already quit from the Islamic Courts Union and fought with us and also we do know that some others are now in the coalition founded in Asmara, so we are advising those who are opposite our movement should follow the majority of the people and back out their negative stand,"

Earlier, the radical Islamic movement fighting in the capital said officially in a statement published on their website that they have nothing to do with the combined opposition groups in Asmara, Eritrea and independently continue the insurgency attacks on the government troops and its Ethiopian ally in Somalia.
