Cash running out for Somalia conference

The Djibouti government has warned that the original budget for the Somali peace conference it's been hosting since May has already been spent.

It estimates that between four and five million dollars has been spent on the gathering, which aims to restore a central government and end years of civil war in Somalia.

Djibouti's finance minister, Yasin Elmi, said the money had been spent on lodging and feeding an estimated two-thousand five hundred delegates.

He said Djibouti would welcome help from the United Nations and the Arab League.

The conference, which had been scheduled to end last month, has allocated seats for a transitional parliament but some clan groups are dissatified with the outcome and have threatened to leave the talks.
