At least one person is reported to have died in Burao and two others injured after the RRU opened live ammunition at the demonstrators. Political tension is high in Somaliland after the RRU took over the parliament last Thursday. 
Somaliland elections are slated for June 2015 but  no voter registration has been done yet. This has created suspicion among the competing political parties as the opposition accuse the current administration of planning to extend its term.
