Qatari prince denies poaching


A Qatari prince has promised to build a nature reserve in the self-declared republic of Somaliland, after being accused by local elders of poaching animals there.

The prince Saud bin Muhammad bin Ali Al-Thani denied the accusations, saying he was making a wildlife documentary.

During a meeting with the president of Somaliland, Muhammad Egal, the prince also promised to build a number of mechanized water pumps in the region.
