Somalia summons Kenyan envoy over airspace violation

Somalia has summoned the Kenyan ambassador to Mogadishu after accusing Kenya of violating its airspace, amid soaring relations between the neighbour countries over a maritime border dispute.

Retired Lieutenant General Lucas Tumbo was summoned by Somali State Minister, Abdulkadir Ahmed-Kheri Abdi who handed him a protest note, demanding an explanation over the said incident on October five when an aircraft flew from Nairobi directly to Kismayu without official permission from Mogadishu.

Somalia describes the action as a contradiction of all principles of good neighbourliness and non-interference in the internal affairs of state.
