News agencies

The country does not have an official news agency. There are a number of online platforms in Somalia and Somaliland that self-describe as Somali news agencies. These include the Somali National News Agency (SONNA), which is based in Mogadishu but has plenty of content on its website and operates an active Twitter account tweeting in Somali, English and Arabic. Then there is the Somaliland News Agency (SOLNA), which describes itself as “a global news agency delivering fast, in-depth coverage of the events shaping our world”.
