I found this intriguing unclassified document on the CIA FOIA site - I hope this in the correct forum.
In December 1995 (approximately) , President Egal of war-torn Somaliland (an unrecognised African country) sent out a frantic call to a number of
nations asking for help.
He describes explosions in a remote northern part of his country and the strange symptoms afflicting humans and animals in the region.
(I have had to paraphrase my quotes from this document as it is actually an image (embedded within a pdf) so text cannot be copied and pasted)
...a fortnight after this event , they found most of the animals in a sort of demented state
... they are almost shedding their outer skin...
... no noise prior to a huge explosion ... witnesses report seeing objects moving at supersonic speeds
I have searched the net for more information, but this appears to be the only document I found that references these events,
The linked document describes (or is a transcription) of the conversation President Egal had with a person by the name of Timothy Ecott (presumedly
working for the CIA or else a BBC journalist).
Here is a link to the document. Please note that it is a direct link to a CIA unclassified document.

Does anyone have more information on this event? I know Somaliland is a war-torn country with explosions being somewhat commonplace, however, the
effects being described are interesting enough to have aroused the interest of the CIA.
