ADDIS ABABA Jan 3 (Reuter) - Twenty-six Somali faction leaders meeting in Ethiopia said on Friday they would set up a ''National Salvation Council'' authorised to establish a provisional central government.
But faction leader Hussein Aideed who claims he is Somalia's president is boycotting the meeting.
The 26 leaders, in a declaration marking the end of an eight-week consultation process, appealed to Aideed and Mohamed Egal, leader of the self-declared Somaliland republic, to participate in the reconciliation process.
UNHCR has issued an appeal for more than $7.7 million to fund new reintegration projects for up to 140,000 refugees who are expected to return to Somalia this coming year.
