Elders from Somalia's Hiran region oppose the regional administration appointed by the Somali federal government because they say it does not reflect the will of the region's residents, Somalia's RBC Radio reported Tuesday (April 9th).

Their statement follows federally appointed regional governor Abdi Farah Laqanyo's arrival on Sunday in the regional capital Beledweyne.
