BBC Monitoring Service - United Kingdom ; 09-Apr-2000 12:00:00 am 

Text of report by Somali newspaper 'Ayaamaha' on 9th April

Puntland regional state [northeastern Somalia] is on the brink of political turmoil over the Djibouti peace plan.

The majority of people in the region are in favour of attending the forthcoming Somali national reconciliation conference in Djibouti, which the Puntland administration has announced it would boycott.

Hasan Abshir Farah, an influential minister of interior and security, resigned the day before yesterday after Abdullahi Yusuf, the president of the Puntland regional government, refused to bow down to the wishes of the majority. The minister is among those supporting the Djibouti president's peace plan.
