In 1962, Algeria gained its independence from France.
By 1967, Algeria had declared war on Israel, severed relations with the west & established close ties with the USSR.
Algeria's first free elections were held on June 12, 1990 & the Islamic Salvation Front (ISF) won handily.
The army wrested power from the ISF in 1991.
The country has been plagued by violence & assassinations since.
