Passengers Disembarking At Hargeisa Airport,  Ilyushin Arrival, Hargeisa, Somaliland

HARGEISA, SOMALILAND - DECEMBER 09: passengers disembarking at hargeisa airport arrival of the Ilyushin18 used for transporting passengers in Somaliland, Somaliland is a former Somali province that declared independence shortly after the Somali Civil War, in the early 1990’s, but is not internationally recognized yet, and its capital is Hargeisa, on December 9, 2011 in Hargeisa, Somaliland.
The Ilyushin is a sovietic-built plane and has been widely used for military and civil purposes. In Somaliland, these planes are sometimes used to export livestock to the Arabian peninsula, one of the main economy's production of the country.
Somaliland used to be a British colony and is one of the three territories that compose the current State of Somalia. Somaliland proclaimed its independence in 1991, putting together an independant state. A referendum has been organized in 2011 to ask for full independence, however, it is not internationally recognized. Most Somalis are Sunni Muslims and speak Arabic, Somali dialects and many of them, English. Some land-related clashes have been happening due to the gap between colonial territory limits and clan alliances, which is a common problem across the African continent.
Hargeisa is the capital of Somaliland and the second-largest city of Somalia. Formerly a part of Somalia, Somaliland claimed its independence in 1991. It has since then functioned fairly well, Somalia not being able to control its territory, but is not internationally recognized as a proper state yet.
