    Over the past 15 years, the Ogaden area in Ethiopia has been ravaged by conflict that's killed thousands of people.

    The region borders Djibouti, Kenya, and Somalia and many of its residents are ethnic Somali Muslims.

    In 2007, Ethiopian forces waged an offensive against the rebel Ogaden National Liberation Front (ONLF)..

    But recently, the government held peace talks  with the ONLF in Kenya. Another meeting is expected in the coming months.
