Explanation

A French colony seized for strategic reasons was inhabited by two main groups of local people, who were not consulted about the borders.

The Afars are excluded from the government and are beginning to form guerrilla forces. If Somalia had a government there might be support for the Issas in government from Somalia.

The French troops who still occupy the country are officially neutral, though they may well be supporting the Issas in practice.
