Somaliland deports group heading for Djibouti

A group of 19 people travelling from Puntland to Djibouti to take part in the national reconciliation talks were stopped and deported by the Somaliland authorities, the Somaliland newspaper 'Jamahuuriya' reported on Monday.

It quoted a Somaliland official, named as Ali Muhammad Waran'ade, as saying: "This is a sovereign state; no one is allowed to travel through this country illegally.

Anyone who enters this country illegally and is not a Somalilander will be sent back.

" There has been no independent confirmation of the deportations.

The UN Security Council last week called on all Somali forces to join the Djibouti talks and appealed to warlords and faction leaders to desist from obstructing and undermining efforts to achieve peace.
