The Saho language is a Cushitic language of Eritrea, spoken in the middle of the country. Their territory is bounded by the bay of Arafali in the east, the Laasi Ghedé valleys in the south, the Eritrea highlands to the west (Akele-Guzai, Shimezana). It borders Tigre on the west and its close relative Afar on the east. It has four main dialects: Toroa, Assaorta, Minifero, and Irob. It has about 200,000 speakers.
It is so closely related to Afar that some regard them as dialects of a single "Saho-Afar language"...... full article at Wikipedia
