BADHAN, Somalia Nov 21 2012 (Garowe Online) – Residents and government officials including Governor of Sanaag region in northern Somalia's Puntland autonomous region hosted a security a meeting in Baran discussing the recent security achievements, Garowe Online reports.

Governor of Sanaag region Mohamed Ismail Eyon, who convened the meeting, discussed recent arrests of 9 alleged Al Shabaab agents who were caught near the foothills of Golis Mountains where Al Shabaab militants are believed to maintain mountain hideouts and fought a war against Puntland forces in 2010.
