Somali is the language of Somalia, and spoken by almost everyone in the country. It is also spoken by people numbering hundreds of thousands in Yemen, Kenya and Djibouti. Due to instability in Somalia, there are also significant communities in territories further afield, mostly in Western Europe. The total number of speakers is almost 11 million, in at least 16 territories.
