    Djibouti's government has handed management of a port, which it had seized from the UAE, to a state-owned company.

    The Doraleh Container Terminal is considered one of the most coveted pieces of real estate in the Horn of Africa.

    Djibouti announced its nationalisation last week, triggering a furious response from the Emirates.
