    Background: French Somaliland where trouble threatens as Sunday's independence referendum draws near. Two rival factions are disputing the issue, the Afars who are related to the Ethiopians living to the North-West, and who want to stay French, and the Somalis, backed by the Somali Republic to the south which has claims on this last French toe-hold in Africa.
