LAS ANOD (Somalilandsun) – An array of Khatumoists Secessionists in Taleeh are in a quandary as per planned Khatumo III conference.

Having arrived in Taleeh town of Sool region in Somaliland as elders of the local Dulbahante clan which is legal, their plans for holding the Khatumo III conference has been jeopardized by the arrival of Special Forces from Hargeisa.

The Khatumo III Conference is intent on establishing a government for the mythical state of Khatumo purportedly to be hived-off parts of Somaliland.

As things stand now following lengthily campaign by Chief Khatumoists and Somalia MP Ali Khalif Galayd and threatening oratory from his paymaster in Puntland, the Somaliland army has established dry beach heads in various areas like HolHol, Hudun and Taleeh respectively.
