Map of Djibouti

The capital is also called Djibouti and was the administrative centre of French Somalialand.

The Cushite people inhabited Djibouti long before the Arab traders and Ottoman Turks were attracted to the region by its strategic position.

With the English set up in Aden, Yemen, the French sought to secure a position on the opposite bank of the Red Sea's mouth, in the late 1850s.

Djibouti became the colony of French Somaliland in 1888 and an overseas territory of France in 1946; renamed the French Territory of the Afars and Issas following a referendum in 1967.
