Somalia says it has restored diplomatic ties with Kenya after severing them in December.


It accused its neighbour of meddling in domestic politics ahead of elections which have now been postponed.

Relations between the two countries are often stormy.

They have been engaged in a maritime dispute for years, with both sides claiming potentially oil-rich waters.

Kenya has nearly 4,000 troops based in southern Somalia in an attempt to form a buffer zone to defend against the jihadist group al-Shabab.
