The Ethiopian government is to sign a peace deal with the United Western Somali Liberation Front (UWSLF), a rebel group active in the Ogaden region for the last 20 years.

The UWSLF agreed to lay down their arms in April and the formal signing of the deal later today will end the group’s armed struggle.
