Djibouti. In February, the government signed a peace agreement with a radical faction of the militant opposition group FRUD (Front pour la Restoration de l'Unité et de la Democracy). The dominant faction within the FRUD had put down its weapons as early as 1994, but a breakaway faction had continued the armed struggle. President Ismail Umar Guelleh was appointed leader of the RPP (Rassemblement Populaire pour le Progrès) government party in March. He replaced former President Hassan Gouled Aptidon, who thus withdrew from politics.
