Security Council praises Somalia peace effort

The United Nations Security Council has said it strongly supports the peace initiative by Djibouti aimed at ending more than a decade of violence in Somalia.

Djibouti's UN ambassador, Roble Olhaye, told the council that the Somali conference underway in his country was making great progress and may be the last chance to save Somalia from chaos.

Some nine-hundred Somali delegates have been attending the peace conference, which aims to re-establish a central government in the country.

The Security Council urged warring factions in Somalia to join the peace efforts.

A UN peacekeeping mission in Somalia failed to reconcile the factions.
