Somaliland says Djibouti conference misguided

Hundreds of people have been on the streets of Hargeisa, in the self-declared republic of Somaliland, celebrating independence day.

The authorities used the occasion to renew their criticisms of the Somali reconciliation conference taking place in neighbouring Djibouti.

The Djibouti conference began in early May and is now in its final stages
