MOGADISHU, Somalia–The African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) has today announced new security protocols and access procedures for the Halane base camp.
Among these changes, is the re-assessment of access routes to and from the Halane base camp. Neighbouring communities, specifically those located at the former AMISOM Outpatient Department (OPD) unit will now access the camp only through Medina gate.
This action has necessitated the closure of all previously used access points in and out of the OPD and re-direction of traffic solely through Medina gate at all times. This is in line with AMISOM reviewing its security protocols and practice.
Additionally AMISOM will begin a comprehensive re-registration exercise of all civilians who have access to the base camp.
All civilian staff and contractors will be kept informed of any further changes in the security protocol.
