Ayn (Somali: Cayn, Arabic: عين ) also spelled as Cayn, is a region in northern Somalia centered on the city of Buuhoodle. It was a province created by Puntland in 2009. It was one of the 7 regions of Puntland. Then in 2012 it was reclaimed by Khatumo State, an attempted federal state for reer darawiish.[1][2][3] As of the 2020s, Ayn is an independent administration ruled by reer darawiish locals and SSC militias.[4]
