Puntland rebukes Somaliland over refugees

A Press release from Puntland State of Somalia calls Somaliland’s decision to stop refugees fleeing from the war in Yeman to enter its territory as despicable and inhumane.
A video from port city of Berbera in which a ship carrying Somali passengers, most of them women and children with visible fatigue went viral on Internet when they were denied entering Barbara by the Somaliland authorities.
In the video one women shouted “We will throw our children in sea if they deny u s enter Berbara”. Somaliland has reversed its decision after outcry and backlash from locals and human rights groups intensified in recent days.
Puntland who gained large acclaim for its hospitality to refugees in other hand seems to exploit this opportunity to debase the moral standards of their rival neighbour Somaliland.
