British Somaliland

Post by jancancook on Sat Feb 19, 2011 4:22 am

British Somaliland was a British protectorate in the northern part of present-day Somalia. For much of its existence, British Somaliland was bordered by French Somaliland, Ethiopia, and Italian Somaliland. From 1940 to 1941, it was occupied by the Italians and was part of Italian East Africa. The protectorate briefly obtained independence on July 1, 1960 as the State of Somaliland before uniting as scheduled later the same week with the Trust Territory of Somalia (the former Italian Somaliland) to form the Somali Republic.[1][2] The government of Somaliland, a self-declared sovereign state that is internationally recognised as an autonomous region of Somalia,[3][4] regards the territory as the successor state to the State of Somaliland.[5][6]
