"A Somali journalist still gets taunting threats in exile",

It was February 2008 when Bahjo Mohamud Abdi received her first anonymous phone call. It was a man's voice asking her to confirm who she was. Abdi was a presenter and correspondent for the state radio in Somalia's semi-autonomous region of Puntland. Abdi confirmed her identity and thought no more about it. But then she received another anonymous phone call two hours later--informing her that she was talking to the "Somali Mujahadeen" and that they could see her in the local shopping center in downtown Baidoa. follow up the link for reading this interesting news article from CPJ's webiste. http://cpj.org/blog/2011/03/a-somali-journalist-still-gets-taunting-threats-in.php
