Deadly blast hits Somalia port

Attack kills at least 20, mostly Ethiopians, in semiautonomous Puntland region.


    Ethiopian troops are currently propping up a shaky UN-backed government in the southern part of the country.

     

    Puntland, unlike the south of the country, has been relatively peaceful since Somalia's last functioning government collapsed in a 1991 revolt, leaving rival warlords to turn on each other and divide the nation among squabbling clans.
