Delegates arrive for Somali peace conference


Somali delegates have started to arrive in Djibouti in large numbers, ahead of tomorrow's national reconciliation conference at a village Arta south of Djibouti.

Delegates include clan leaders, civil rights activists, politicians and armed groups. But only one main faction leader -- Ali Mahdi Mohamed -- is expected to attend.

Others have rejected the peace plan put forward by Djibouti, which envisages a transitional government to run Somalia for two years.

The former president of the self-proclaimed Republic of Somaliland, Abdurahman Ahmed Ali, is also in Djibouti, although the authorities in Somaliland have rejected the Djibouti initiative.
