Bosasso (SL Times) - Peace negotiations brokered by two Somaliland traditional leaders are still underway in Bossasso.
The talks are being held between Abdillahi Yusuf's faction and the commander of his rival forces, General Adde Muse. This followed a 3 month mediation effort by Boqor (King) Osman Aw Mahmud (Bur-Madow) and Sultan Saeed Sultan Abdulsalam, both from Somaliland's Sanag region.
On Monday Adde Muse forces reached Bosasso where they have been welcomed as heroes by the local population. The peace talks between the two sides are believed to have entered the final stage.
