Media of Somalia

Media of Somalia Last updated on Sunday 25th April 2010

The government-owned Xiddigta Oktobar, published in Somali, is the only daily newspaper, with some periodicals in Arabic, English and Somali.

Two government-owned radio stations, Radio Mogadishu and Radio Hargeisa, broadcast in Arabic, English, Italian, Somali and some other languages.

The state-run television station did not begin operations until 1983. Furthermore, the collapse of Somalia's infrastructure because of the civil war has caused widespread disruption to the country's telecommunications systems.
