    So Trombetta 2015 has this data put together by EthioHelix
    http://ethiohelix.blogspot.co.uk/2015/06/improved-resolution-of-e-m215-aka-e3b.html

    Which shows Ethiopian Somalis only carrying V32 at 25%. I know the sample size is small but this is still significant. I guess the other 50% was left out because they weren't E-M215 or even E at all. Wasn't it also that they seem to cluster away from Somalis autosomally-wise?

    Most of the Ethiopian Somalis tested were Dir and thus the vast majority carried the T haplogroup. Autosomally they cluster with other Somalis from Somalia, it was only some of the Somalis from Kenya who clustered slightly away from other Somalis due to slight Omotic admixture.

    Low sample size, remain skeptical. These dumb researchers have a tendency to sample from the least representative places often.

    All the K5 Somalis on 23andMe are either E-V32 or T1. Very rarely are there other subclades.

    And the other E's they carry? Seems quite similar to the amounts Oromos carry.
