Somali faction leaders jet in for peace talks
NAIROBI, 11 JUNE 2003 (KBC)--Somali factional leaders on Tuesday evening streamed into the country to participate in the final phase of the ongoing Somali National Reconciliation Conference at Mbagathi, Nairobi.
The leaders who jetted in through the Wilson Airport said they had resolved to participate in the talks in order to end the 13 years of bloodshed in the Horn of Africa.
Among them was Punti-Land President Abdullahi Yusuf. Hundreds of Somali refugees living in the country converged at the airport to welcome the leaders who will determine whether peace and stability will prevail in the war torn country. END
