For example, between Puntland and Somaliland there exists a buffer zone, formed by the disputed territories of Sool Sanaag and Cayn, where a large set of states have alternatively emerged and disappeared. In 2008, the leaders of the clan Dulbahante announced the formation of an autonomous state, the Northland State of Somalia. But during the dispute with Puntland, Somaliland extended its control on the presumed capital, Las Anod, and the Northland state ceased to exist. Cite journal requires |journal= (help)
