Somalia is on the Horn of Africa and links between the Arab world and the African yet with a flavor all of its own. Essentially the country is divided into 5 autonomous regions including Puntland and the self-declared Somaliland government.
Until 2012 the country had been without a government for two lawless decades and, although the fractured nation had witnessed a period of relative stability recently, it remains highly dangerous.
