Djibouti delegations welcomed in southern Somalia


Two senior delegations from Djibouti have been holding talks in southern Somalia as preparations continue for the Somali peace and reconciliation conference.

It's due to open in Djibouti on Tuesday, after being postponed from last week.

One Djibouti delegation went to the Bay region of southern Somalia, where it received a top-level welcome at Baidoa airport, despite the fact that the Rahanwein Resistance Army leadership in the area previously opposed the Djibouti conference.

A BBC correspondent in Somalia says it now appears they've changed their minds.

The second Djibouti delegation was welcomed to the Hiran region, where the leadership has long supported the peace conference.
