    During a raid on January 6, 2024, Somaliland security agents forced their way into the headquarters of MM Somali TV, assaulting journalists and abruptly stopping a televised debate about X space while also damaging broadcast equipment.

    The International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) joins its affiliate, the National Union of Somali Journalists (NUSOJ), in condemning these actions as a heinous blow to media freedom, and demands the immediate release of journalist Mohamed Abdi Sheikh, CEO of MM Somali TV, who is still being held incommunicado, despite the fact that two other journalists arrested with him during the raid were released without being charged.
