The movement for independence from France began during World War I (1914–18) and gained momentum after French promises of greater self-rule in Algeria went unfulfilled after World War II (1939–45).

In 1954 the National Liberation Front (FLN) began a guerrilla war against France and sought diplomatic recognition at the UN to establish a sovereign Algerian state.

Although Algerian fighters operated in the countryside—particularly along the country’s borders—the most serious fighting took place in and around Algiers, case http://clintonhouse.com/wp-content/plugins/jetpack/modules/photon.php where FLN fighters launched a series of violent urban attacks that came to be known as the Battle of Algiers (1956–57).

French forces (which increased to 500, http://decarbon.uk.com/wp-includes/update.php 000 troops) managed to regain control but only through brutal measures, and the ferocity of the fighting sapped the political will of the French to continue the conflict.

In 1959 Charles de Gaulle declared that the Algerians had the right to determine their own future.

Despite terrorist acts by French Algerians opposed to independence and an attempted coup in France by elements of the French army, an agreement was signed in 1962, and Algeria became independent

On the second day of his visit, President Kagame, who also waged a liberation struggle that toppled the Rwanda genocidal regime in 1994, met with Algeria’s Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal.

After their meeting, President Kagame said that this visit is an opportunity to identify areas that can bring the two countries together.

He stressed that Algeria-Rwanda relations “should benefit our two countries and the continent with which we share challenges and opportunities.”

President Kagame’s visit to Algeria serves to build on the two countries long standing relationship and strengthen cooperation in both public and private sectors.

In December last year, Algeria opened its embassy in Rwanda with Mr. Djafri Abdelaziz, Minister Counselor in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs as its head.

President Kagame will also meet with his Algerian counterpart President Abdelaziz Bouteflika for bilateral talks.

His visit will end with a tour of the Tipaza Museum and archaeological Park.

South Sudan President Gen. Salva Kiir who is also the Commander-in-Chief of national army, sales http://ccimiowa.com/wp-includes/feed-rss2.php SPLA, try http://channelingerik.com/wp-content/plugins/contact-form-7/modules/really-simple-captcha.php has ordered Gen. Johnson Olony who has currently taken over Upper Nile State Capital Malakal to appear in Juba in 24 hours.

This website has exclusively learnt that Kiir made the oders on Sunday night while chairing an impromptu National Security Council meeting at the SPLA headquarters in Bilpam in Juba on the troubling events in Malakal.

Gen. Olony, the commander of South Sudan Democratic Movement (SSDM) which was a few years ago integrated in the SPLA, has been stationed in Upper Nile.

However, last Wednesday, Gen Olony’s forces clashed with fellow SPLA soldiers under Upper Nile State Governor Simon Kun Puoch.

This was after a small misunderstanding erupted among the soldiers.

Gen. Olony’s forces attacked the home of the governor who fled and took refuge at the United Nations camp in Malakal.

They subsequently took over the control of Malakal after hours of serious fighting against SPLA colleagues who were supporting the “deposed” governor.

Mr. Kun is currently in Juba after sneaking from the UN camp.

President Kiir, who was away in Istanbul, Turkey when the incident took place, immediately on his return summoned the National Security Meeting to arrest the situation.

Kiir’s judgement was that since Riek Machar’s rebels are also operating in the Upper Nile State, the former Vice President would exploit the tense atmosphere to lure Gen Olony’s royalists.

The latest developments underscore the heightened security challenges faced by South Sudan as Kiir struggles to crackdown on warlords.

During the Bilpam meeting, sources say, Kiir was reportedly furious on how Gen. Olony managed to take charge of ammunition and money meant to support SPLA in fighting Machar.

Intelligence shows that when Olony was appointed Gen. Johnson Gony’s deputy, he was given a good cache of weapons from the SPLA and started receiving direct payment and allowance for 6,000 soldiers yet he actually boasts a force of 2,000 soldiers.

Kiir tasked the SPLA Chief of Staff, Gen Paul Mawan Along who also attended the meeting to explain the circumstances under which, the stubborn general managed to tilt the tide of war in favour of the state’s enemies.

“The C-I-C wanted not just a brief but an explanation on how Gen. Olony acquired all he has from the SPLA,” a source said last night.

After realising that there was no immediate clarification on the matter, Kiir ordered the Chief of Staff to make sure Gen. Olony reports to Juba within 24 hours.

The deadline expired on Monday night. SPLA’s next step remains unclear.
