October 27, 2009 (NAIROBI) — Ogaden rebels accused the Somali Puntland regional administration of handing over youth from southeast Ethiopia troubled region to Addis Ababa government.

Last year the Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF) said Puntland regional administration had sealed a secret deal with the Ethiopian government to handover Oganden people and rebels to Addis Ababa.

Puntland Administration recently arrested a number of youth from Ogaden region and and handed them over to the Ethiopian government, said Hussein Mohamed Nur, ONLF communication officer.

In a statement to the independent Shebelle website Nur said Somaliland and Puntland deliver Ogaden youth to the Ethiopian government. He added that his group sent messages to the two administrations calling to stop such cooperation.

The Ogaden rebels dismissed last September cooperation with the Islamist insurgents in Somalia, Al Shebab who want to topple down the UN backed government in Mogadishu.

The rebel group said not surprised by this accusations from the governor of Somali officials who are "sponsored by Ethiopia," reaffirming that there group does not interfere in the internal affairs of the Somali republic and in fact has so far supported the new transitional government" despite the close relations between some Somali officials and Addis Ababa.

    The Punland regional government of Somalia has done the right thing by handing over terrorists to the Government of Ethiopia. These so-called youths are not nromal people but deadly evil Al-Qaeda supporters who must be apprehended and kept behind bars to stop them from hurting innocent people in Somalia and Ethiopia. It is therefore important for all governments in Horn of Africa to cooperate in order to remove all threats that terrorists have brought to the region.

    Indeed, the North Sudan Government are causiously determine the issues over Halayeb as well as the rioters from Beja/Afar tribes from Ethiopia.

    Considering as a same ethnic groups over this disputed land belonging to Egypt/Sudan can’t be penetrated from Ethiopian side.

    The Turkmen Warriors and Assyrian Iraq/African Tribes will surely put them under their feet all whole this territorial triangle against East Africans of Ethiopian origin, and surely they will be defeated.

    The Asshuri/Turk African Tribe will surely protect Nubians and this east African Tribes of Ethiopia will be defeated under their feet!!!

    The Prostitutes should go back to their origin of ethnicity!
    So, you better stay away from our territory of soon or later, you will be defeated.
