History of Somalia:
Intermittent civil war has been a fact of life in Somalia since 1977. In 1991, the northern portion of the country declared its independence as Somaliland; although de facto independent and relatively stable compared to the tumultuous south, it has not been recognized by any foreign government.
Beginning in 1993, a two-year UN humanitarian effort (primarily in the south) was able to alleviate famine conditions, but when the UN withdrew on March 3, 1995, having suffered significant casualties, order still had not been restored.
Yet again another secession from Somalia took place in the northeastern region. The secessionist state took the name Puntland after declaring independence in 1998.
A third succession led by the Rahanweyn Resistance Army (RRA) took place in 1999. That seccesion was reasserted in 2002.
This led to the autonomy and independence of Southwestern Somalia.
The RRA had originally set up an autonomous administration over the Bay and Bakool regions of south and central Somalia in 1999.
