By the beginning of the 20th
century the northern portion of Somalia was under British control & the southern portion
been aquired by Italy. At this time there was a brief uprising of Somalis against the
British. The British
defeated this wave of nationalism. During WWII the British & Italians
fought over the northern & southern portions
of Somalia. It was not until 1960 that the two
parts were finally united & became an independent republic.
