Somali peace delegates leave Djibouti

Somali peace delegates leave Djibouti Delegates attending the Somali reconciliation conference in neighbouring Djibouti are preparing to return home, after a ceremony last night formally ended the four months of talks.

About two-thousand Somalis had gathered at the peace conference by the time it elected a transitional parliament earlier this month.

At the weekend, the parliament elected an interim president for Somalia -- Abdulkassim Salat Hassan of the powerful Hawiye clan.

He was an interior minister under former President Mohammed Siad Barre.

Mr Salat has said he plans to name a government and return to Somalia soon.

But several faction leaders, as well as the leaders of the northern regions of Puntland and Somaliland, have said they do not recognise him.
