For Immediate Release 


UN Special Representative for Somalia calls for the release of two women from Medecins Sans Frontières.  
Nairobi December 26 2007 - The UN Special Representative for Somalia, Mr Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah, has said he is shocked by the kidnapping of two staff members working for Medecins Sans Frontieres in Bosasso, Puntland.  

Mr Ould-Abdallah said that kidnapping the humanitarian workers did not serve the cause of peace or Somalia’s traditional culture of hospitality particularly at this religious period of joy and forgiveness - Eid and Christmas.  

The Special Representative appeals to all actors involved in this operation and those behind them to free unconditionally the two women from MSF.
